The Story Behind The Little Nell Hot Toddy
Cognac (or brandy) has often been used in Hot Toddies, but whiskey usually reigns supreme. Time to switch it up. The heady floral bouquet in this Toddy cocktail keeps it lighter and dangerously drinkable.
- 2 ounces Hennessy VSOP (or XO) Cognac
- 1 bag Rishi Tea’s “Chamomile Medley” tea (or any other chamomile tea)
- ¾ ounce lemon juice
- ½ ounce anise
- Honey simple syrup
- Build the cocktail in any insulated glassware or mug and top with Rishi’s “chamomile medley” tea.
- Garnish with a nutmeg-dusted lemon wheel.
