Cozy Hot Toddy Elixir Mixer Recipe
What is a Hot Toddy?
Our Hot Toddy recipe for the Elixir Mixer is a cozy alcoholic beverage made with honey, lemon, spices, and typically whiskey or brandy. It's often consumed before bedtime or when feeling under the weather, as it's believed to help with cold symptoms.
Make Any Drink With The Elixer Mixer
- 1 1/2 oz whiskey (bourbon, scotch, or brandy also work)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1 cup hot water
- 1 cinnamon stick or a pinch of ground cinnamon (optional)
- Add the whiskey, honey, and lemon juice to your Elixir Mixer.
- Pour in the hot water, filling up to the desired level.
- With the flip cap open (to allow steam to escape), whisk on the first speed until all ingredients are well combined.
- Add the cinnamon stick or sprinkle in a pinch of ground cinnamon if desired.
- Sip and enjoy the comforting warmth!
Can I use tea instead of water?
Absolutely! Many people enjoy adding a tea bag (like chamomile or black tea) to the hot water for added flavor.
Is it true that Hot Toddies can cure a cold?
While a Hot Toddy can't "cure" a cold, the warmth, honey, and lemon can soothe a sore throat and provide comfort.
Can I make a non-alcoholic version?
Sure! Simply skip the whiskey and use tea or hot water, honey, lemon, and spices.
Why is it called a "hot toddy"?
The origin of the name is debated, but one theory suggests it came from "toddy," a drink in India made from the fermented sap of palm trees.
