A Hot Toddy is a warm alcoholic beverage typically made with whiskey, hot water, honey, and lemon. It is often enjoyed during cold weather or as a comforting drink when someone is feeling under the weather. The basic recipe involves mixing whiskey, hot water, and honey or sweetener in a glass or mug, and then adding a squeeze of lemon juice. Some variations may include spices such as cinnamon, cloves, or nutmeg, and additional garnishes like a cinnamon stick or lemon slice. The warm temperature of the drink, combined with the flavors of the whiskey, honey, and lemon, can provide a soothing and relaxing experience.
This one is a heart warmer for sure. Enjoy this drink when the winter is at its coldest.
*It is important to note that consuming alcoholic beverages should be done responsibly and in moderation.
