Gin Hot Toddy Cocktail

  • 60ml/ 4 parts Beefeater Gin
  • 30ml/ 2 parts hot water
  • 30ml/ 2 parts lemon juice (fresh)
  • 15ml/ 1 part honey

Glass: Heat-proof stemmed glass or coffee cup.
In a mixing jug, add hot water to honey and stir until dissolved. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and gin. Stir and transfer to chosen vessel
.

Feel free to add your own choice of spices such as cloves, star anise and cinnamon. Orange can be used instead of lemon.

A zesty twist on the original whisky and rum Toddys made popular by British sailors. It's also reminiscent of the old cure for a common cold – lemon and honey. But this delivers far more of a kick.
