Healthy Spirits, San Francisco’s premier destination for libations and hummus, cordially invites our customers to a complimentary cocktail tasting at our Cortland location on Saturday, November 19. Between 3 and 6 p.m., we will feature Anchor Distilling’s Christmas Spirit in a blanc version of the classic Manhattan cocktail. A representative from Anchor Distilling will mix and discuss the cocktail. Ingredients will be available for purchase, along with the spirit, through the holiday season.
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
