Hot Toddy

The Kentucky Gent, a Louisville, Kentucky life and style blogger, shares his recipe for a Hot Toddy.

If your family is anything like mine by this time of your night you’re about to be reaching for the liquor cabinet (hell, I’ve been sipping on my bourbon all day). When you’re winding down from a long day there’s nothing more relaxing than a warm cup of tea in my opinion, but sometimes tea by itself just doesn’t do it for ya. That’s where the Hot Toddy comes into play.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this tour through our Friendsgiving as much as Grit and Glitter, Chapter 25 Photography, and I enjoyed putting it together for all of you. I’m sure you’ll see more posts like this in the future, but until then knock back a couple of these Hot Toddies, and we’ll pretend we’re drinking them together.

INGREDIENTS

  • 24 ounces water
  • 1 whole nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 star anise
  • 1 tablespoon crushed allspice
  • 3/4 ounce agave
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 ounce honey water (combine equal parts honey and water)
  • 6 ounces of your favorite bourbon (Bulleit is my bourbon of choice, duh)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Bring water to a simmer on the stove.
  • Crush nutmeg.
  • Add cloves, cinnamon, star anise, allspice, and nutmeg to water.
  • Add agave and lemon juice and let simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Add honey water and stir.
  • Pour into a glass and add 2 ounces bourbon.

  • Gold Rush Recipe | The Kentucky Gent November 24, 2015 at 9:20 AM

    […] I had my first Gold Rush at The Silver Dollar, and since in my mind the folks over at The Silver Dollar are geniuses I thought this drink was something they whipped up. And it honestly wasn’t until recently that I realized while it may have been their Gold Rush recipe the cocktail is actually a tried and true classic AND a cold alternative to a Hot Toddy.  […]
