Hot Toddy

Bet you didn't know that today is... National Hot Toddy Day!! 

In honor of this festive occasion, here are some recipes I conjured up (translation: Googled).


yield: Makes 1 drink
active time: 5 min

Brandy or Scotch also work well in a toddy, but the vanilla sweetness of good bourbon was our favorite — this time, at least.

1 oz (2 tablespoons) bourbon
1 tablespoon mild honey
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup boiling-hot water

Put bourbon, honey, and lemon juice in a 6-ounce mug. Top off with hot water and stir until honey is dissolved.

1 lemon, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
1/2 cup Demerara sugar
1 quart water
2 1/2 cups Scotch whiskey
Freshly grated nutmeg

Combine the lemon, sugar, and water in a small, 2 to 3-quart slow cooker set to high. Cover and heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves completely, 20 to 30 minutes. Add the Scotch whiskey and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and serve warm with lemon slices and freshly grated nutmeg
