Our Food Story 18 | The Hot Toddy

Celebrate the festive season with this soothing hot toddy, which is the perfect tipple for cold winter nights.

◾ Harrogate Still Water
◾ 1 Tea Bag
◾ 1 measure of Whisky
◾ Ogygia Honey
◾ 2 Lemons
◾ 1 Orange
◾ 3 cinnamon sticks
◾ Star Anise

Start by adding approx. 750ml of Harrogate Spring Water into a pan. Bring your water to a gentle simmer and add a Tea bag – we left ours in for a few minutes to infuse! Turn your pan down to a low heat and add a shot of whisky.

Carefully peel an orange (careful not to get the pith!) and slice into segments. Next, slice a few pieces of lemon and add both the lemon and orange to the pan – squeezing in a little lemon juice too! Next, add a cinnamon stick, a few star anis and a good drizzle of good quality honey. Infuse on a low heat for 5-10 minutes and set aside.

Add a few slices of lemon to your glass before pouring the hot toddy mix! To finish, garnish with a cinnamon stick a swirl of orange rind! Cheers!
