Honey Bourbon Hot Toddy
If America’s Table had a motto, it might be “No Month without a Bourbon Recipe.” We might be overdoing it, but in the depths of miserable weather (and I’m referring to my friends in California), there’s nothing like a hot toddy to calm the nerves and warm the soul. Just the words ‘hot toddy’ sound like something old-fashioned and comforting, a good memory that’s slipped just past our recollection, but something we know we love.
This toddy comes from Bon Appetit magazine, where they’ve elevated it by infusing the bourbon with apples for several days (isn’t your mouth beginning to water?). Add honey and lemon, and you’ve got all the fragrance, flavor, and potency to make any long day seem so much better in retrospect. If you leave the bourbon and apples infusing in the fridge, they’ll be ready for the next Friday night that you need a little warming TLC.
WHERE DID HOT TODDY ORIGINATE?
Hot Toddy is a drink recipe that original comes from India, using a mix of liquor (usually bourbon or whiskey), hot water, honey, and spices. A classic hot toddy uses a few basic ingredients, and gets really popular right around flu season as the cocktail is also often used as a remedy.
A lot of people believe a toddy will reduce common cold symptoms, but it’s more likely that it just soothes them like a cup of tea or chicken soup. Some believe that the whiskey has a numbing effect, too. There are a lot of different toddy versions nowadays, ranging from ingredients like ginger-ale to whiskey.

Fall’s Perfect Cocktail
While apple cider has a lovely deliciousness in its simplicity, bourbon has a taste to explore and understand. But when you put them together, something miraculous happens – a flavored bourbon cider cocktail for bringing people together, something to warm up anyone’s autumn mood (and bones).
Fun fact about bourbon, it actually has to fulfill a fixed set of rules in order to be considered true bourbon. This type of booze needs to be produced in the US from a grain mixture with at least 51% corn, and aged in new, charred oak. No wonder it’s the alcohol of choice for many classic cocktails, as well as the occasional dessert. Have you ever had bourbon pumpkin pie? It’s amazing!
The great thing about this cocktail recipe is that you can work it out any way you like. Wishing for more flavor? Be generous with autumn spices, like cardamom, cloves or nutmeg. Like more sweetness? Add a drizzle of honey. Looking to really warm up your bones? Don’t skimp on the bourbon! We just love it when a cocktail is versatile like that, because who has the time to measure every tinee-tiny ounce?
I personally prefer my drinks to be balanced – not too sweet, not too boozy – so I use a reasonable bourbon quantity, just enough to fire up the apple cider, and I added just a little cinnamon for flavor, and a good quality, raw and organic honey for just enough sweetness.
How to Make a Hot Toddy
Believe it or not, the Hot Toddy is not made with tea. In fact, it’s a classic cocktail made with hot water, whiskey, honey (or sugar), fresh lemon juice, and sometimes a cinnamon stick garnish.
Prepare really hot, nearly boiling water and stir in honey, bourbon, and fresh lemon juice. Garnish with a lemon wheel and cinnamon stick and serve in a glass mug or any heat-safe mug.
The cinnamon stick is totally optional If you don’t have any on hand, but it adds a nice touch and really steeps into the cocktail as you sip. A must-have if making for a crowd.
