Warm Up Winter With a Hot Toddy

November 11, 2015Sew White

Although later than planned it’s finally starting to get cold and Christmas is on the horizon. Horray! Bring on the hot meaty dinners, mince pies and of course hot drinks. I’ve been asked to try the Hot Toddy from thebar.com to celebrate the dark evenings and brisk cold which is now in the air.

The Cardhu Hot Toddy is made with Diageo’s Cardhu Whiskey which has beautiful hints of apple which compliments the lemon and honey very well while hot. This drink definitely signals the countdown to Christmas has officially started.

It was lovely, hot, sweet and was mentally warming as well as physically. After making the drinks I wrapped up in my coat, scarf and pompom hat and took it outside to keep me warm. I felt so happy, warm through and cuddled up while drinking it and watching the fireworks. The cloves definitely have a noticeable taste  in the finished drink but they work very well the honey and whiskey. If you aren’t too fond of cloves it still tastes very good without them.

A delicious way to warm yourself through, especially after a lovely country walk.

I’m starting to feel very Christmassy now! For more Christmas drinks click here

    Whisky and Honey is a good mix. It tastes so warming. My nan used to have a Hot Toddy if she was getting a cold.

      It was lovely. Could definitely do with a few more events that work with a hot toddy!

    Oh I do love a good hot toddy. Usually we reserve them for when we are sniffling and sneezing all over the place – they are way more effective than a lemsip! I must say, bautiful photos too!
