A Hot Toddy, mixed and ready to drink.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 house brandy
  • hot water
  • lemon slice (garnish)

Mixing Method: Build

  1. Build in a preheated mug.
  2. Add the honey and brandy.
  3. Fill with hot water and mix.
  4. Garnish with a lemon slice.

Mixology Notes:

The Hot Toddy is the most popular hot cocktail in the world. It’s almost always made with brandy, but any base spirit, such as dark rum, or rye, can be requested for this drink. Use strong flavored Manuka honey and a bit of lemon juice, if seeking the medicinal benefits. Otherwise use a mild flavored clover honey, so the Manuka doesn’t overpower the drink.
