This is the perfect bourbon and tea-based drink to enjoy when it's cold outside! For starters, a hot cinnamon spice tea makes us think of the candy Red Hots (and we love it!). It has a natural sweetness, and a definite cinnamon kick. This tea stands just fine on its own, but given the Hot Toddy's reputation to battle pesky winter colds, we think it's the perfect remedy (with an added caffeine kick!) to enjoy with family or friends around the holidays.
Makes 2 glasses
- 2 hot cinnamon spice tea sachets
- 16 oz. water
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 6-12 Tbsp bourbon (depending on desired strength)
- 2 Lemon Wedges
- Cinnamon sticks for garnish
Boil water, and steep 2 hot cinnamon spice tea bags for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags, and stir 1 tablespoon honey until honey dissolves. Add the bourbon (depending on your desired strength). Divide between 2 Toddy glasses.
Add a lemon wedge to each glass. Stir each with a cinnamon stick and serve.
