When I think about hot, winter cocktails, the first that comes to mind is a hot toddy. I think it was the first hot cocktail I was introduced to, some time in university, miserable with a cold. Originally made with just a spirit and hot water, the hot toddy has evolved to include all different manner of spirits and additions like honey, sugar, male syrup, lemon juice, cayenne, and other herbs and spices.
Today's particular toddy is a tribute to a good friend of Eric's who passed away a few years ago. Scotty was a huge fan of Seagram's rye whisky, so in his honour, Eric created Scotty's Toddy, a close-to-classic toddy made from rye, hot water and lemon juice.
