Healthy Spirits’ Recipes: Classic Hot Toddy with Whiskey

Without a doubt we can all agree: this rainfall is much needed. As many of us are likely opting to stay indoors these nights, what could be a better warming opportunity than to break out some cocktail recipes?

The Hot Toddy is a tried and true O.G. cocktail. Not only a classic cold-buster (in case the rain takes your health down with it), it’s quick to execute and comes to life with quality ingredients.

Below you’ll find our recommended recipe for the classic Hot Toddy with whiskey. And if you come into any of our three Healthy Spirits locations, our whiskey experts will gladly connect you with a bottle of whiskey that will do this old faithful justice.

Classic Hot Toddy with Whiskey

• 1½ ounce whiskey
• 1 tablespoon honey
• ½ ounce lemon juice
• 1 cup hot water
• Lemon wedge
• garnish with a cinnamon stick and star anise (optional)

Single Barrel Selects.

From time to time, we get the distinct pleasure of choosing our own “barrels” to then bottle and sell exclusively at our shop(s). Its a pretty darn good perk and we’re very happy to share this opportunity with you. This time around we’ve got a couple of familiar names, however, they are from barrels that our whiskey buyer, Nate, really effing liked.

Come on by to either location and pick up your own bottle of this limited juice.

New Arrivals from Sudwerk, Monkish, Port, Green Flash and Stone

Damn it feels good to be a Californian.

We got loads of beer in this week (and today). Nearly all of it from California (which I’m realizing as I’m typing this). And out of all the beer we received today, the one that is most curious to us is the Funke Hop Farm from Sudwerk. I believe its the first time we are seeing it at the shop (or in San Francisco for that matter).

We don’t know a whole lot about the beer other than what we found on the internets. The Beer Of The Month Club website had this to say about it:

“Brewed with oats and wheat, and fermented out with two strains of saison yeast. It spends about six to nine months in an assortment of barrels-Petite Sirah, Grenache, Chardonnay-while being fermented with Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and a house yeast culture from their in-house solera system. It’s then blended with an all-Brett beer that’s barrel-aged separately, bringing in more tropical and guava notes. Oh, and it’s dry-hopped at 1.5 pounds per barrel with Simcoe, Nelson, and Citra.”

Sounds intensely good. We gotta try it. You can buy it at both our locations.

On that note, hop on down the rest of this page to see the other Cali-beers that are now (literally chilling) in the fridge at Healthy Spirits. They wanna be drunk. So drank’em.
