Papa’s Cough Medicine

hot root tea

I’ve covered Art in the Age’s ROOT Liqueur before, and while I haven’t quite found a cold cocktail that I love with it yet, it makes a hot tea to die for, and probably the best cough remedy I can think of, particularly when you use a ton of citrus with it. The recipe is simple (of course):

  • 1 1/2 oz ROOT
  • juice of 1 mini orange or lemon
  • top with boiling water
  • if needed, add sugar or honey to taste

Hot Toddy

I’d always heard of Hot Toddys, but have never made one until just recently. Hot cocktails are a rare treat, and they usually only make up about 5% of the big cocktail books. Now that my town’s already had a snow or two this year, it’s time to try some classic cold weather cocktails. The best way to think of a Hot Toddy is it’s like tea, but with whiskey instead of tea. Yes please!

  • in a mug, add:
  • 1 sugar cube
  • a dash of nutmeg
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • 2 oz whiskey (I used Jim Beam Black)
  • top with boiling water and stir well
