How to Make a Hot Toddy

How to Cocktail: Hot Toddy

This warm and comforting classic cocktail will cure what ails you. In our video, top bartender Jacques Bezuidenhout shows you how to make a Hot Toddy.


Fill a mug with boiling water and let stand for a minute or two to warm. Meanwhile, stick the cloves into the lemon twist and set aside. Empty the mug and fill about halfway with fresh boiling water. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Add the prepared lemon twist and stir. Add the lemon juice and whiskey, and stir again.

    Hot Toddys are brilliant. I feel like a slice of fresh muddled ginger and a squeeze of honey make it a bit better. A lot of ingredients, but good for curing a cold.
