Hot Toddy

A popular drink often used for medicinal purposes, Hot Toddy is easy to make and just the thing to drink before going to bed if you have a heavy cold – although it is delicious at any time!



10 fl. oz. water

5 fl. oz. whisky or brandy

1 teaspoon lemon juice

2 strips lemon rind

1 teaspoon ground allspice or mixed spice

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

Place all the ingredients in a small heavy saucepan. Set the pan over low heat and cook, stirring frequently, for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is very hot.

Remove the pan from the heat. Remove and discard the lemon strips. Pour the drink into a small, warmed jug and serve immediately.
