Base Toddy Recipe

  • 1-2 oz liquor -- The most commonly used are rum and brandy, including flavored varieties. Irish whiskey is also popular, but there is no rule. You can even combine two liquors.
  • 1 cup hot liquid -- Most recipes use hot water, but some use tea or coffee. Technically the standard Irish Coffee could be considered a toddy.
  • 1 tsp – 1 tbsp sweetener -- An advantage of the toddy is the sweetener can go in at the end and you can add a bit at a time until desired sweetness. Any favorite sweetener can be used.
  • Spices to taste (optional)
  • Lemon or orange zest, juice or fruit (optional)

To make, place all ingredients into a mug and stir to combine. Add garnish as desired.

  • Yields: 1 serving
