Old Fashioned Hot Toddy

Updated: Apr 23


2 cups soft peppermints (crushed)

2 cups local honey

1 cup whiskey

1/2 cup lemon juice



  1. In a large nonstick pot on low heat, dissolve the peppermints in a few tablespoons of water; stirring constantly. Add water as necessary when it becomes too thick to stir.

  2. When dissolved, stir in the honey, whiskey, and lemon juice then bring to a simmer and stirr occasionally for about 30 minutes. The mixture should become syrupy.

  3. Remove from heat, let cool slightly and carefully pour into mason jars or a decanter. Store tightly covered for about 8 months on the counter.

  4. Take 1-2 large spoonfuls every night.
