We love warm winter cocktails not only for their ability to keep us toasty during the cold winter nights but also for their, ahem, somewhat debated medicinal properties (okay, we know this isn’t true but it’s fun to pretend). And the key for us to get around to making a cocktail is to stick with the old adage, keep it simple. That’s why we’ve created the Easiest Hot Toddy You’ll Ever Make! Seriously, only two ingredients if you don’t count the water!


– 4 ounces Wild Turkey American Honey

– 2 lemons

– 12 ounces water

So how did we make this hot toddy easier than a normal one? We just cut out the honey by using honey-flavored bourbon, yum!

Start by gathering your ingredients and tools (we used a tea kettle but you could easily just microwave or boil the water instead).

Boiling water is the longest part of the process, so go ahead and get that going first.

Meanwhile, prep your lemons. You’ll want one quartered and another one thinly sliced for garnish.

Then measure one ounce of honey bourbon into each cup.

By now your water should be boiling. Go ahead and fill ‘er up with three ounces.

Add a little more flavor with a squeeze from one lemon wedge.

Top with a thin lemon slices for garnish and you’re done! You can even serve it on a tray like a boozy tea time.
