The cold, bitter winter of south Louisiana. Yeah… that’s a bit of a stretch, isn’t it. Forget that we think it’s winter down here when temps reach anything south of 60 degrees regardless of the actual season, the fact is we get cold too. There’s no better way to warm up than with a nice warm whiskey cocktail. It’s delicious and easy to make. Here’s my take on the classic hot apple toddy.
1 oz George Dickel no. 12 Tennessee Whisky
3 oz hot apple cider
1/4 oz ginger liqueur
1/2 teaspoon honey
In a rocks glass, mix the George Dickel, hot apple cider, ginger liqueur and honey. Add the lemon twist and cinnamon stick. Garnish with a dash of nutmeg.
