A new way to say...

This winter I have been all about the Hot Toddies (as per usual), but recently I have been adding Beckerovka (a liqueur from the Czech Republic). Becherovka is flavored with anise seed, cinnamon, and approximately 32 other herbs, so it basically tastes like Christmas in liquid form. SO GOOD!!! Try my new and improved Hot Toddy Recipe below for the cold winter nights when an extra KICK IN THE PANTS is needed.

1 shot Whiskey

1/2 shot Becherovka (or more depending on intensity desired)

1/2 cup hot water

1 Tbsp honey or agave syrup

1 Tbsp lemon juice

4 cloves, cinnamon stick

Pout hot water into mug, add honey, lemon juice and shots. Wedge cloves into lemon slice and place in liquid. Add a cinnamon stick if desired. Serve.
