Hot Toddy

A hot toddy is a cool-weather glass of cheer with limitless combinations of spirits. Few ask whence the “toddy” in hot toddy comes. Despite its name, the hot toddy should not be served too hot. Heat the mixture in a chafing dish or saucepan until just before boiling, and let it cool a few moments. For added flair, you may also use a hot poker.

Game plan: Pair it with our apple pie recipe for the perfect pick-me-up on a cold winter night.

Bonus: In the Morgenthaler Method video here, Jeffrey Morgenthaler from Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon, shares his modern version of a hot toddy, which isn’t really a hot toddy at all, more like a drink inspired by the hot toddy.
