Want to warm up with a kick? This Hot Toddy will do the trick!
· 2 oz (¼ cup) bourbon
· 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
· 1 tablespoon honey
· Boiling water, to fill a mug (6 to 8 oz)
· Cinnamon stick for garnish
· 3 to 4 cloves for garnish
. 1 star anise pod for garnish
Combine the bourbon, lemon juice, and honey in a mug and add the boiling water (use more or less, depending on how strong you'd like the drink to be). Stir until the honey is dissolved and the ingredients are well combined, 10 to 15 seconds. Garnish with the cinnamon stick, cloves, and star anise pod.
Note: When serving, warm up some heavy mugs by first filling them with boiling water. Once they’re nice and toasty, spill out the water and fill with the cocktail. This will help the drinks maintain their cozy warmth a bit longer.
