Aqua Vitae: Hot Toddy

Believe it or not, Usher and Jay-Z did not invent the Hot Toddy. They might, however, have reminded us of our love of this delicious cold weather treat!

While we have no scientific proof to back this up - we're pretty sure they cure colds and the flu, but it's just a theory.

There are literally hundreds of recipes for this drink, so feel free to change it up to suit your tastes.

1 spoon Runny honey
2 oz. Scotch whiskey
1/2 oz. Freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup
3 dried cloves
Top with hot black English breakfast tea

Place spoon full of honey in the bottom of a warmed glass. Add other ingredients and stir until honey is dissolved. Top with tea and garnish with a cinnamon stick and lemon slice.

Place your new deliciously warm concoction in the Bodum Shin Bistro Coffee Cup ($12). Wrap your chilly little hands around them, sip and enjoy!
