Cocktail Hour with Lisa Fox

1 Comment

The cold weather is really beginning to settle in now and everyone I know seems to have the sniffles. Therefore, this month, we have to talk about hot toddies. There is nothing better on a chilly night than a warm cocktail to soothe the body and soul.

There are a bunch different ways to make a hot toddy. Some people use rum, others brandy, but I prefer mine the more traditional way—with whiskey. I’ve recently become very, very fond of Blanton’s and I now use it for all of my whiskey needs, but feel free to use the brand of your choice.

Hot Toddy

  • 1 oz whiskey (or brandy or rum)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1 cup hot water

Add the liquor, honey, and the lemon juice in a mug. Heat water to boiling, add it to the glass, and then stir.


The cocktail itself is very basic, but there are hundreds of variations. You could add cinnamon or cloves or nutmeg or even a tea bag to spice things up. Go wild!

And drink up!

In reality, she can generally be found at her desk with a cup of coffee close at hand. Or maybe a martini. It really depends on the day.
