I fell in love with hot toddies during our trip to Denver in Fall 2012.
a mug of brewed tea (English Breakfast tea is a solid choice)
1.5 shots of rye whiskey
a teaspoon of honey
5 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
the juice of about a quarter of a lemon and a lemon slice for garnish
1. Brew a mug of tea by nuking some water and steeping a tea bag in it for 5 minutes.
2. In another mug, mix the rye whiskey and honey. Add the cloves and cinnamon stick.
3. Pour the tea into the mug with the whiskey and stir.
4. Squeeze in some lemon juice. You can garnish with a lemon slice if you’re feeling fancy.
