Hot Toddy

A spin on the classic—Bourbon, lemon, honey, cinnamon, and clove all make an appearance. I use chamomile tea instead of water and mace instead of nutmeg. I find that both of their milder flavors let me taste everything else in even proportions. The mace also looks like a flame, and flaming drinks just look plain cool.



1 serving


In a heat tolerant cup, dissolve honey in lemon juice and bourbon.

Stab cloves into lemon wedge garnish, add to cup along with cinnamon stick and mace aril.

Fill cup with hot water and steep for several minutes.

Sip and enjoy!


Don't let this drink sit for too long, mace that is over steeped with become bitter.
