The Tennessee Toddy is a whiskey cocktail inspired by the Hot Toddy, or as they call it in Ireland, Hot Whiskey. Traditionally, this drink is made with whiskey, hot water, honey, lemon, herbs and spices. We simplified it a little by using our favorite hot tea instead of the herbs and spices. This soothing drink is the perfect remedy for cold, rainy days. Feeling under the weather? I'm no doctor, but take my advice. One of these before bed does wonders for a sore throat!
