My bourbon Hot Toddy, made with honey, fresh lemon juice, and a cinnamon stick, is sure to be the pick-me-up you need to get through the winter months.


  • 3/4 cup, very hot water
  • 11 1/2 ounces bourbon, rye or Applejack brandy*
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3/4 ounces fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick for garnish


  1. Pour very hot water into a glass mug, stir in bourbon, lemon juice, and honey until fully disolved.
  2. Garnish with a lemon wheel and cinnamon stick.


Use 1 ounce whiskey for more mild flavor, 1 1/2 if you’re not afraid of bourbon like me. Interestingly enough, hot water activates the bourbon, making it taste stronger.
