Whisky - Traditional Hot Toddy

Whether a hot toddy actually helps you shake off a cold is debatable but it does one job better than any other drink out there – it instantly lifts the morale and makes the rain and wind battering against your window sound somewhat less ominous. For that reason alone we believe it's well worth treating yourself to one every now and then.

Today we give you the first of two recipes. The first one is a classic 'perfect' hot toddy with honey, lemon and just a touch of spice.

Wick Harbour Hot Toddy

A perfect hot toddy calls for simplicity and balance. This recipe is easy to follow and the result will pick you up in no time when you get home after a cold and wed day out.

50ml your favourite Black Dog TGR
100ml hot water
25ml lemon juice
2tsp heather honey
3 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
Ground nutmeg to garnish
Lemon twist to garnish

Put the cloves and the cinnamon stick in the glass and pour in boiling water, allow to infuse for 2-3 minutes. Dissolve the honey then add the lemon juice and whisky. Garnish with a lemon twist and a sprinkle of ground nutmeg. Serve immediately.
