  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves whole
  • 1 chamomile tea bag
  • 1 ginger tea bag
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup whisky
  • tablespoons juice from 1/2 a lemon about 2


  1. Pour two cups of water into a small saucepan. Add the cinnamon stick and three whole cloves and turn heat on medium-high. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Turn heat off. Take out the cinnamon stick and cloves and place the ginger and chamomile tea bags in the saucepan. Let steep for 10 minutes with the lid on.
  3. Take tea bags out. Add honey, whisky, and lemon juice. Turn heat on medium and stir together until honey is completely dissolved and the drink is the temperature that you want.
  4. Pour into a mug for one large serving or into two mugs for a smaller serving size.

Recipe Notes

1/4 cup honey makes the best tasting hot toddy. Even people who don't like hard liquor love this drink. However, I myself sometimes feel like there is too much honey. I don't mind the taste of whisky so I change the amount all the time based on what I'm in the mood for. If I have not had anything sweet all day then I reward myself with the full 1/4 cup. Otherwise, I reduce it, letting the whisky taste be more prevalent.
