Hot toddy is a classic that's quite simple to make. Some believe that it soothes cold symptoms but what we're sure about is that it definitely offers warmth and comfort. Usually made of dark liquor, honey, lemon, and tea, the hot toddy is open to experimentation. So it's easy to customize it to your own personal taste and what's available to you. This recipe uses brandy, but you can use rum or whisky too. For this one, we've added tea to give another layer of flavour to the drink.
What you'll need:
250ml hot water
1 tea bag (any variant of your choice)
15ml lemon juice
lemon wedge and cinnamon sticks for garnish
How to make the drink:
1) Place the tea bag in a cup of hot water and steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
2) While you're steeping the tea, heat a serving cup by filling it with hot water.
3) Discard the water once the glass is warm and coat the bottom with honey.
4) Add the hot tea and lemon juice. Stir with a cinnamon stick. Serve.
