So, What's A Hot Toddy Exactly?
Like most older inventions, the origin of a hot toddy is a little hard to pinpoint. Some believe that the hot toddy originates from 1610s British-controlled India. Others claim that the drink owes credit to 18th-century Scottish doctors who prescribed it as medicine. And it is known to the Irish as hot whiskey. Typically, a hot toddy is made from tea, spices, honey, lemon, hot water, and whiskey, making it the perfect slow sipper and nightcap. This warm, simple, and soothing creation can be used to ease symptoms of the common cold or (if you're like us) as the perfect ending to a day spent on the trail.
