This time of year, I think we could all use more things in our lives that feel like hugs.

Deliciously cozy sweaters. Long baths. The rich sound of a vinyl record. And a cocktail that warms you up, from the inside out. I’m probably biased as a winter gal myself (my birthday is in February), but I do love a good hot toddy, especially after a particularly cold day. And today, with my friends from Aberfeldy — a whisky straight from the rolling Highland hills of Scotland — I’m sharing the perfect (and incredibly easy!) hot toddy recipe below. Cheers to you all, or as the Scots say, slàinte mhath!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz. Aberfeldy whisky
  • 0.5 oz. local honey
  • 0.5 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 cup of hot water
  • lemon wedge
  • cinnamon stick
  • star anise


Add your Aberfeldy whiskey, local honey, lemon juice and hot water to a mug. Stir together well, then garnish with a lemon wedge, cinnamon stick and star anise. Cozy up with a good book, light a candle or two and enjoy!
