5 tea-infused Hot Toddy recipes to start the season

There are few offers as welcome on the first chilly nights of autumn as a hot drink by a crackling fire.  This season, our top pick for warming up is a classic- the Hot Toddy.  Whether you prefer the company of close friends or a good book, this fragrant, soothing drink is the perfect way to unwind and enjoy the season.

The exact origin of the Hot Toddy is unclear, but many suggest it was first prepared in Scotland in the early 1700’s. The traditional version involves a base mixture of whisky, boiling water, tea, honey and lemon, garnished with a combination of cloves and cinnamon. Through the years, this delicious brew has been recreated using a range of flavors such as apple, ginger, pumpkin, maple syrup and bitters.

If you’ve never tried a Hot Toddy, here are 5 of our favorite tea-infused recipes sure to inspire you:
