Dating back to the 1800's the Hot Toddy is known as the perfect night-cap to end a chilly winter day. Some even swear it's the best way to soothe a sore throat. This classic recipe is very easy to customize, so don't be afraid to experiment like we did with this Blood Orange Hot Toddy. While the original recipe calls for Irish Whiskey, the smooth sweet flavors found in most bourbons are also a great compliment to the fresh, tart lemon juice. Another way you can make this your own is by swapping the plain sugar for an alternate sweetener like honey or maple syrup, both will play nicely with the spicy clove and whiskey flavors. So whether you're fending off a cold, or thawing out by the fire, mixing up a classic like this is sure to warm you up from the inside out.
At first glance this drink may not seem like a snow day sipper but trust us it is. The Irish whiskey flavor and clove aroma combine with fresh fruit juices to deliver a cocktail that will cure even the worst case of winter blues and frozen fingers.
