Additional notes:

The traditional Hot Toddy recipe is made with whisky but we prefer this French twist on a well known classic with its lovely warming flavours and its pronounced herbal and spicy tones. With thanks to Adam Freeth of Shaker UK BarSchool for recommending this great variation on the traditional Hot Toddy recipe made using Scotch whisky.


A cinnamon stick – which also gives extra flavour.
