Hot Toddy Recipe

by The Culinistas

Autumn’s approach came quickly and the weather is brisk; time for a warming drink (a little kick never hurt either!). A Hot Toddy is easily prepared with pantry staples, so we recommend stocking up on spices and honey as a precursor to cold weather. We’re partial to bourbon toddies, although whiskey, brandy, and scotch are all excellent substitutes. Throw in a stick of cinnamon and a couple pods of cardamom for extra depth and nuance.
