Classic Hot Toddy Recipe

Let’s warm up with some hot toddies! They could not be easier to make. For this classic cocktail, you’ll just need hot water, whiskey, honey, and lemon. Unlike your typical mulled wine, wassail or warm cider, hot toddies are light and hydrating rather than overwhelmingly sweet.

Hot toddies are lovely slow sippers or night caps and sometimes they’re perfect for playing cards with the family.
