For your hot toddy :
1-1.5 oz of bourbon, whiskey, brandy or spiced rum.
1 oz of lemon juice
.75 oz of honey
(Optional add a few dashes of bitters for an extra kick)
Now you must warm these ingredients:
Take two cocktail shakers (metal cup like shaped) fill one 1/2 full with boiling water and float the other one inside on top the hot water. This will make you a double boiler type system and from there you can build your drink in this vessel.
Ok you got the whiskey, lemon, and honey hot….
Using a towel or hot pad grab the top shaker out of the double boiler and pour ingredients into a pre-warmed cup. Top with hot water and garnish with cinnamon, or nutmeg.
