Honey-Bourbon Hot Toddy

Summary: This is from Bon Appetit's Andrew Knowlton. He calls for apple bourbon if you have or make it. Regular bourbon will definitely suffice, but not the difference in amount of honey used.

Yield: serves 2


  • scant 2 tablespoons honey (in my opinion, less is more)
  • 6 tablespoons bourbon (if using apple bourbon, use just 1 tablespoon honey)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3.5" strip lemon peel
  • 1 cup very hot water


Mix honey and hot water until honey is dissolved. Add cinnamon stick and bourbon and pour hot water in. Stir. Enjoy.
