How To Make A Hot Toddy

Fireball!! Have you tried it? I hear this is what the kiddos shot down when out on the town.

Had never tried it, until making this Hot Toddy cocktail!

A hot toddy is a classic winter cocktail that is perfect for a cozy night in.

I used a good slosh of the Spiced Negroni Gin by Four Pillars Gin… (The cardamom hit was on point!)

Plus a little grated nutmeg on top of the dehydrated lemon.

How To Make A Hot Toddy Cocktail



  • 1 1/2 oz whiskey (bourbon, rye or scotch)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tea bag (black tea or herbal tea of your choice)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup boiling water


  1. Place the tea bag, honey, and cinnamon stick in a heat-safe glass or mug.
  2. Pour the boiling water over the tea bag and let it steep for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Remove the tea bag and cinnamon stick, and add the whiskey and fresh lemon juice to the glass or mug.
  4. Stir everything together until the honey has dissolved.
  5. Garnish with a fresh lemon slice or cinnamon stick if desired.

Enjoy your hot toddy while it’s still hot!
