What Liquor To Use in a Hot Toddy

The classic Hot Toddy recipe calls for whiskey, water, honey, and lemon juice. With only 4 ingredients it’s important to choose the best-tasting and highest quality in my opinion. If you’re not sure where to start with choosing a whiskey to use, Cocktail Contessa made The 7 Best Whiskeys for a Killer Hot Toddy guide for choosing a great whiskey for your Hot Today recipe.

Ingredients for the Apple Chai Hot Toddy

  • Whiskey: For this recipe, I used Bulleit. You can choose from their selection of whiskies here. All of them are premium and bold, but not too overpowering. A perfect blend of smoothness and richness. 
  • Warm apple cider: I warmed up some apple cider to add to the cocktail. I recommend your favorite brand from the grocery store or going to an actual apple orchard and grabbing it fresh. Otherwise, a brand like TreeTop Honey Crisp Apple Cider will work. 
  • Hot chai tea: I used Tazo Chai Tea. I heated up some water in my kettle and steeped the tea bag in hot water before adding it to the cocktail. 
  • Honey: For this recipe, I used one of my favorite honey brands, Local Hive Honey. There are tons of honey varietals on their page, you can view them all here.  
  • Apple slice, cinnamon stick, and star anise: Don’t forget to garnish this delicious cocktail with an apple slice, cinnamon stick, and star anise.
