Hot toddy

History is a little blurry on the exact origin of the ‘hot toddy’, some suggest that it was invented in Scotland in the 18th century, more likely though, ‘toddy’ was derived from the Hindi word ‘tārī’ which was a drink (served cold) made from the sap of the toddy palm.
What we do know is that somewhere along the line it made its way to the British Isles and evolved into a hot drink with a base of water, spirit and spice. This particular blend could help invigorate blood flow (through the cinnamon), while ginger stimulates the circulation (which could help aid digestion).

  • 60ml Jameson Select Reserve
  • 120ml hot water
  • 1tsp finely-chopped ginger
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1tsp honey
  • Pour the Jameson Select Reserve into a mug.
  • Add the honey.
  • Pour in the hot water over the spoon you used for the honey to get off the last little drops (traditionally this was done to prevent the glass serving mug from cracking).
  • Squeeze the lemon wedge and drop the wedge into the mug. Let the mixture steep for 5 minutes.
