The Hot Toddy is a warm and comforting cocktail that’s perfect for a cold winter evening. It’s made with whiskey, honey, lemon, and hot water, and is typically served in a heatproof glass or mug. The honey and lemon add a touch of sweetness and tartness, while the whiskey provides a warming kick. The hot water helps to open up the flavors of the whiskey and infuse the drink with the other ingredients.
To make a Hot Toddy you will need:
- 2 oz whiskey
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 8 oz hot water
- cinnamon stick or lemon wheel, for garnish
In a heatproof glass or mug, combine the whiskey, honey, and lemon juice. Top with hot water and stir until the honey is dissolved. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or lemon wheel.
