National Hot Toddy Day It's hard to find a better beverage for cold winter nights than hot toddy. No wonder there is a holiday dedicated to this popular drink. National Hot Toddy Day is celebrated on January 11, which is fitting, since it's in the middle of winter.

The origin of hot toddy is unclear. The first mentions of this beverage date back to the 18th century Scotland, although the word toddy itself comes from the name of Indian palm wine. There aren't many verified facts about hot toddy, but food historians believe that the recipe of the drink was developed specifically for women to make the taste of whiskey more palatable for them.

Today, hot toddy is not only a delicious drink, but also a remedy for sore throat. Regardless of whether you want to warm up or just relax, make hot toddy with your favorite liquor to enjoy a mug of hot deliciousness. There are lots of different hot toddy recipes. The original hot toddy recipe calls for a spirit (typically whiskey, rum or brandy), hot water, and honey or sugar. Many people like additional ingredients in their hot toddy, such as lemon, spices (usually cloves and/or cinnamon), apple cider, tea, coffee, cocoa, maple syrup (instead of honey/sugar), and even butter!

We recommend that you start with a classic hot toddy made with whiskey, hot water, some honey, lemon, and a pinch of cinnamon. This drink is perfect for a snowy afternoon or evening; it will help you warm up before going to bed.
