Traditional Hot Toddy

I don’t know about you, but when I’m not feeling well there’s nothing like a traditional hot toddy. It’s soothing and fortifying all in one.

So why do we relegate it to only times when we’re unwell? Who knows…but this traditional hot toddy will change your perspective on that. And if you make enough of the spiced syrup then you can be sipping through traditional hot all winter long. Lucky you!

Let’s Get Stirrin’


½ oz meyer lemon juice

½ oz spiced syrup, recipe below

2 oz whiskey (we used Corbin Cash Blended Whiskey)

2 oz hot water


Stir ingredients together. Garnish with dehydrated lemon slices and enjoy your traditional hot toddy, hopefully when you’re feeling just fine!.

Spiced syrup recipe

12 oz wildflower honey

12 oz water

4 cinnamon sticks

5 star anise

6 allspice berries

Small handful cloves

Peel from 1 lemon


Bring ingredients to a boil, turn off heat, remove the lemon peel and let sit until cooled.

…but am I going to like it?!

Getting to know your palate, what you like, and what you don’t like is a critical part of being a great craft tippler AND key to becoming a great home bartender as well!

So before you break out that barware and buy the key ingredients, here’s a little guidance on what to expect from this cocktail so you can start to hone in on exactly what elements of cocktails you enjoy and which you’d prefer to minimize.  This helps you order new cocktails you love when you’re out on the town better as well!
