My Perfect Hot Toddy Recipe

By , January 11, 2020

As a whiskey lover, a hot toddy is an obvious choice for a warm winter drink, but there are so many hot toddy recipes out there, with all different ingredients. Finding the perfect combination took a little experimentation.

I tried recipes that involved lots of spices, such as cinnamon, but I didn’t like them! It turns out that my perfect hot toddy is super simple: lemon, honey, water, and of course, whiskey. Without further ado, here is the classic hot toddy that I love to sip in the cold weather.


  • 1.5 oz. whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 cup hot water
  • Lemon wedge


Combine whiskey, honey, lemon juice, and hot water in your favorite mug. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
