Warm up on a cold winter day (or wet spring/fall day!) with a classic hot toddy. This warming cocktail, typically sipped on at night before going to sleep, is made with just a few simple ingredients and can be put together in no time.
Feeling under the weather? A hot toddy can be a soothing concoction that helps to relive symptoms of cold and flu.
Whisky is a key player in creating the extra layer of warmth in this drink. Did you know most Canadian whisky contains grain corn as a main ingredient? Some whisky blends even include a mix of rye grain, barley or wheat grains!
