Jasmine Hot Toddy

Marisa Chavetz / Supercall

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.
