Traditional Hot Toddy


  • 6 oz. almost boiling water
  • 2 oz. of Scotch whiskey.  If you prefer you can use an Irish blend, or the sweeter Bourbon, or even brandy but Scotch is the traditional choice.
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 slice lemon
  • 3-4 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick


  1. Pour 6 ounces of steaming (not boiling) water into a mug followed by in 3-4 cloves, a slice of lemon and a tsp or less of honey and stir. Be careful not to over-sweeten, drop in the cinnamon stick.  These ingredients will need to be adjusted to your taste,
  2. Do not pour the Scotch in until the brew has steeped, or else you may evaporate too much of its potency.
  3. Steep for 3 minutes, then take the cinnamon out.
  4. Add the 2 ounces of scotch

Then head for the couch, kick off your shoes and relax.
