When the weather outside is frightful, which it very well has been this past week, I love being able to pull on a pair of sweats and snuggling up with something warm to sip on. Since I am not a coffee person, I enjoy making a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate on days when it is just too cold for me to tolerate. However, on really cold days I sometimes like to add a little "something extra" to my drinks. With tomorrow being National Hot Toddy day I thought I would share with you a great recipe on how you can celebrate and stay warm at the same time. For those who don't know what this is a hot toddy is a drink made with honey, lemon, hot water and liquor. Here is how you can make your own hot toddy in celebration (and to stay warm!)

  • 2 oz whiskey
  • 1 oz hot water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • a twist of lemon

  1. Coat the bottom on your tumbler with the 1 tablespoon of honey.
  2. Pour in the liquor and top with the twist of lemon.
  3. Pour your hot water into the glass and stir with the cinnamon stick. 
  4. Enjoy!

As with most recipes, the hot toddy can be made many different ways depending on where you are from. Here are some great variations on this classic drink that you can try as well from Urbanspoon:
