- Hot Toddy recipes please!
So we’re having a christmas drinks night tomorrow in the flat, Rum Eggnog, Gluhwein and introducing my Canadian friends to Hot Toddy. Horrendous hangovers guaranteed…
I’ve experimented with honey in the bottom of the mug, half slice of lemon, spiced plum tea (plum, cinnamon, cloves) and a dram of whisky (Jonnie Walker red, if you ask, but Black Grouse for the main event).
Was pretty good, think the tea masked the lemon which was a shame though, might try it just with hot water next time. Any other tips?
Any other tips for getting Canadians drunk on whisky? 😀Posted 5 years agotrevron73Member
Spiced cider is my favourite, you will need
servesPosted 5 years ago
2 bottles cider any
2 cinamon sticks
1 orange quartered and crushed
6 cardomon seeds split
3 bay leaf
splash lime cordial
i glass red wine (for colour)
gentley heat dont boil for 20 mins
sip or smash it down iun one
I prefer mine with a normal tea bag (used earl grey last time) and more whiskey than advertised.
Whiskey (more than usual – about 1/3rd)
Tea bag (remove after a min)
Lemon (add last because it doesn’t like being too hot)
Touch of cinnamon if you like.
It becomes more of a spirit version of mulled wine, but I like.Posted 5 years agoWorldClassAccidentMember
MethodPosted 5 years ago
Pour a large whiskey to keep you going while preparing
Put posh tea in a diffusion basket
Pour a large spoon on honey over the diffuser
Top up your whiskey to steady your nerves
Pour hot water over diffuser so the honey dissolves and the tea brews
Wait about 3 minutes, just time for that extra whiskey
Remove the diffuser and give the tea to the wife and settle down with the remaining whiskeystumpyjumperMember
Get a glass half pint glass with handle
Teaspoon of honey in the bottom
Slice of lemon in there too
Stick of cinnamon
Generous measure of your favourite whisky try and avoid islays it goes best with speysides or blends
Finally grate about 3mm of fresh ginger into a tea strainer and pour the just boiled water of the ginger into the glass
Let the ginger steep in the glass for a minute.
Remove and enjoy
Or try a hot buttered rum. My misses lives em.Posted 5 years ago
Haha, good advice WCA.
My original recipe seemed to go down well although it was the third drink of the night after mulled wine with port and then mulled cider (with Rum). All washed down with some home-made egg-nog (with, variously, rum, whisky, then rum and whisky).
Good night all round I thought. 8)Posted 5 years ago
