Friday’s Vintage Cocktail

Hello lovelies!

It’s Friday, and its time for Friday’s Vintage Cocktail to celebrate the weekend! This weekend is rather exciting, tomorrow is the Riverlands Mintessouri High Tea; raising funds to build children’s playground equipment, I’ll be performing an opening number and myself and other members of The Perth Pinup Community will be walking in Cherri Lane’s fashion show! What exciting plans do you have for the weekend? I hope at least starting with a fabulous cocktail!

Please remember to drink responsibly, and if you’re a younger reader to be aware of your states drinking laws, most of the my cocktails can be made without the alcohol to make a delicious mocktail!

For this week’s drink I’ll be making the classic cocktail, Hot Toddy! I thought this drink is very well suited since the weather of late is very cool, and we’re in the season of colds and flus. The Hot Toddy is a cold remedy with vitamin C for health, honey and warm water to soothe and liquor to numb the symptoms and any discomfort. This drink is believed to have originated over 200 years ago in Scotland, and its creational was eventually to influence the popular 1950’s drink the Old Fashioned.

  • 1 teaspoon of honey.
  • 1 jigger of whisky
  • 2 cloves.
  • 1 stick of cinnamon.
  • 1 slice of lemon.
  • A dab of lemon juice.
  • 1 cup of boiling hot water.

Method: 

  1. Take a heatproof mug or glass and add the jigger of whisky, and honey, then fill with boiling water.
  2. Add the gloves, cinnamon stick, lemon slice, and juice and stir.
  3. Drink up your delicious drink!

I’m honestly not much of a whisky drinker, but the flavour in this is very subtle. This drink is delicious, the cinnamon, lemon and cloves really give the Hot Toddy a unique flavour. With the heater on, and raindrops falling from the sky this drink the perfect way to spend a winter’s afternoon. Having a bit of a cold at the moment I do hope I feel the effects of this remedy!

    You can switch the whiskey for apple cider to make the English version, if you’re not fond of whiskey.
