Warm and toasty and just in time for this last leg of winter, the Hot Toddy is a cold weather classic and it is very simple to make.
The basic recipe requires only a base liquor, honey, lemon, and our Better Than Sex tea. The best part is that you can put your own spin on this iconic drink.
Brandy, rum or whiskey all make an excellent base for the Hot Toddy and which you choose will be a matter of personal taste.
