Basic Hot Toddy

The January 11 Winter Warmers cocktail class will include a few variations of the hot toddy concept, but here’s a basic one to keep you warm until then. Besides being delicious, it can also be a nice cold remedy – the lemon juice and hot water open your sinuses, the honey coats your throat, and the alcohol might help you sleep – or make you just not care so much that you’re sick!

Whiskey Hot Toddy
1 1/2 oz whiskey of your choice (bourbon, rye, scotch)
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz honey
4 oz boiling water

Combine all ingredients in a mug and stir to mix. Sip and enjoy.
