Bushmills Hot Toddy Infusion Recipe

A hot toddy is a classic cold- and flu-killing drink consisting of hot water and whiskey flavored with lemon and cloves. This infusion might not cure you of your sickness but it sure tastes great!

I like the milder flavor of Bushmills but you can use any whiskey, Scotch or bourbon you like. The infusion is great on its own but for a classic hot toddy just combine the infused whiskey with some boiling water, sugar, and maybe a slice of lemon. I usually use 2 oz of the infusion with 4 oz hot water and 1 tablespoon of honey.

Lightly scrub the outside of the lemons then remove the zest with a vegetable peeler or zester. Make sure little to no pith came off as well, using a paring knife to remove any.

Combine the lemon zest, cloves, cinnamon and Bushmills in a Mason jar or glass bottle then seal. Place in a cupboard or cabinet and let sit for at least 3 to 6 days or up to a few weeks, shaking the bottle every day or two. Strain the whiskey before using.
