    Classic Cold Weather Cocktail: Hot Toddy

    Prep time: 5 minutes
    Serves: 1 person
    Pairs well with: A bit of simple cookies like biscotti or shortbread are lovely on the side but stands alone very well

    Ingredients:

    • 1 oz Bourbon
    • 1 T Honey
    • 3 tsp Lemon Juice
    • 1/4 C Boiling Water
    • Optional: Cinnamon Stick and/or Star Anise, as well as Sliced Lemon Garnish

    Mixing instructions:

    • Measure into a small mug: Bourbon, Honey and Lemon Juice.
    • Top off with boiling water.
    • Stir until honey is dissolved.
    • Add garnishes if desired.

    Notes:

    • The classic version of the Hot Toddy features Scotch or Brandy, but we go for Bourbon because of the smooth finish and vanilla flavor it adds.
    • Fresh squeezed lemon juice tastes excellent but to save time, try a bottled organic or higher end lemon juice.
    • This is a small serving so 1 1/2 the recipe for larger mugs.
    • Avoid peaty Scotch varieties as they don’t pair well with the lemon and honey.
    • When selecting honey it’s best to use a mild variety.
    • Bullet Bourbon is our go to brand when we make this drink.
