3 Hot Toddy Recipes – Scotch, Rum, & Mezcal!

Today I’m showing you three different recipes for the Hot Toddy! The toddy is a style of drinks that predates the cocktail (it’s super old). Original recipes were served both hot and cold, and consisted of a base spirit, sugar, and water. Since then, recipes have evolved to include teas, citrus, and spices. It seems everyone has a go-to recipe, so I thought I’d share mine along with a couple of variations – all tasty, all comforting. Hope you’re all enjoying the new year! Stay cozy, everyone. Cheers!
