National Hot Toddy Day

Today is National Hot Toddy Day (I may like saying National Hot Toddy Day more than I liked saying National Roast Suckling Pig Day)! A hot toddy is a warm cocktail that I like to drink when I'm in the mountains of Aspen. Okay, so I've never been to Aspen, but I imagine that a hot toddy would be the ideal drink on a snowy afternoon at a ski lodge. However, it would also make a great drink on any cold, winter day. So, instead of having your usual afternoon coffee or tea, have a hot toddy. For the recipe,

Hot Toddy
From Drinks Mixer

1 tbsp honey
3/4 glass tea
2 shots brandy
1 slice lemon

  1. Brew tea and fill a tall glass 3/4 full.
  2. Mix in honey. Mix in brandy shots.
  3. Add lemon slice and enjoy.

Serves 1.

Is that what's actually in a hot toddy? I always wondered!

My (Scottish) mother would often make me a hot toddy when I was feeling ill, but her recipe was a little different: about a cup of hot water, 1 Tbsp. honey, lots of fresh lemon juice (about 2 Tbsp.), and a shot of Scotch whisky. Sooo warming, soothing and delicious!

Mmm, yummy. Unfortunately, I don't think my boss will let me use this as an excuse to drink these during working hours today! "But boss, it's National Hot Toddy Day!" I'll have to settle for drinking one tonight.
