Jasmine Hot Toddy
This cocktail from Barley Swine—regularly lauded as one of the best restaurants in Austin, Texas—is a weeks-long project. But if you’re willing to put in the time, you’ll be richly rewarded with an amazing take on a Hot Toddy—and some delicious, homemade spiced whiskey to boot. The recipe calls for barrel-aging whiskey with an array of spices, as well as apples, for three weeks before mixing the aromatic spirit with the usual Hot Toddy suspects: lemon juice, honey and hot water.
- 2 oz Barrel Aged Spiced Whiskey
- 3 oz hot water
- .25 oz honey
- .25 oz meyer lemon juice
- Dried Orange Peel
- star anise pod
Combined whiskey, hot water, honey and lemon juice in your favorite mug.
