While not in the frame of mind to taste cocktails tonight, my condition lead me to come up with a drink to contribute.
1.5 oz Beefeater 24 London dry gin
6 ounces ginger lemon tisane2
honey to taste
Make tisane. Add gin. Stir in honey to taste. Garnish with slice of lemon. Enjoy soothing on throat.
This is my basic hot toddy recipe, although I usually use black tea and 2 ounces of rum. I chose to use 1.5 ounces of the gin because of the stronger proof of the Beefeater 24.
I think the ginger and 24 make an excellent pairing. This is probably the first gin toddy I’ve made, and I’ll definitely be making more of these in the future. I do hope I won’t be sick, just wanting something warming.
What’s your favorite hot toddy recipe?
