Gin Hot Toddy Recipe

Cocktails, Ginspiration

Cold and flu season has struck. If you’re anything like me – wincing while gulping down a Lemsip and subsisting on now flavourless soup – you’ll be super grateful for this juniper-based take on the traditional Hot Toddy.

Juice half an orange into a mug. Add a teaspoon of honey, and a good slug of gin (Sipsmith works well, but anything with heavy juniper will work, too). Top with boiling water, bruise a couple of cardamom pods and add to the mix. Stir until the honey has dissolved, remove the cardamom pods, and enjoy.

If a couple of these don’t help your cold, you’ll at least be half cut and won’t care about your snotty nose anymore. Yay!
