When I think of cold winter days and night I immediately imagine sitting comfortably in front of a fireplace, hot toddy in hand. Seriously, who doesn’t love something nice and warm when it’s below freezing outside?

The traditional recipe usually includes honey, lemon, a pretty strong spirit and tea; though many skip that. Here is a nice twist on a classic cold weather favorite. If this doesn’t make you feel nice and toasty then nothing ever will.

2 GINGERS® Hot Toddy
4 parts 2 GINGERS® Irish Whiskey
2 parts Agave Nectar
1 part Ginger Liqueur
1 part Lemon Juice
A dash of aromatic bitters

Combine ingredients in a mug. Top off with hot water, stir, and garnish by floating a lemon wheel stabbed with dry cloves. Not into cloves then garnish with a  cinnamon stick instead.
