The Story Behind The Oaxacan Ginger Toddy

Mezcal is a perfect liquor for a Hot Toddy, as you’ll still get smokiness and warmth from the spirit. Try this one that features chartreuse and heavy cream.


  • 1 ounce Vamonos Riendo Mezcal
  • ½ ounce yellow chartreuse
  • 1 sugar cube (or teaspoon of white sugar)
  • 1 bag ginger tea
  • Heavy cream


  1. Add mezcal and yellow chartreuse to a 6 oz Toddy glass. Fill 60 percent of the way up with hot water and add a bag of ginger tea and sugar cube.
  2. Steep for 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Remove bag and top off with more hot water.
  4. To garnish, float hand-shaken heavy cream over the top of the drink.
  5. For an optional garnish, grate dehydrated lemon zest over the cream.
