Hot Toddy Recipes with Brenne Whisky

January 7, 2014 § 9 Comments

With the record low temperatures we’re having, I thought there no better time then now to share some of my FAVORITE Hot Toddy recipes using Brenne whisky!

The classic Hot Toddy is made with hot water (tea optional), lemon, honey and either whiskey, brandy or rum.  I like to kick it up a bit and use a more complex tea that I think would complement the specific aged spirit that I’ll be adding.  And there’s definitely a correlation between us whisky geeks and our deep appreciation for fun teas!

Brenne is a much more fruit-forward, floral & creamy Single Malt which lends itself especially well to Toddy’s, particularly if you make them with black teas that hint of orange, vanilla, cinnamon, burnt sugar, lavender … you get the idea!  Below are 2 of my favorite recipes but feel free to play around using different teas and reversing the garnishes!

Now that we’ve established the recipes, let’s break down the (VERY EASY) steps!  While you’re reading, go ahead and put the kettle on the stove and start bringing the water up to boil … And we’re off!
