There’s only one acceptable use for whisky that we’d ever consider. We’re not going to tell you that you can descale your kettle, disinfect your wounds, or light your campfire with the golden stuff – we’ll leave that for vodka. A good whisky is for drinking, and drinking only. That doesn’t mean whisky can’t be enjoyed for different reasons though (as Adam Hannett reminded us in our recent interview).
In fact, for centuries it’s been used for its medicinal properties. And that’s where the Hot Toddy comes in - a sweet and delicious blend of honey, lemon, whisky, and spices, it’s our go-to to help us get over a cold or flu. And if there’s one place that knows how to make the perfect hot toddy, it’s our local Kelvingrove Café in Finnieston.
We met up with Head Bartender Jamie at the Café to find out how it’s done.
That definitely looks and tastes like the perfect Hot Toddy to us. And, remember, there’s no need to wait until you’re ill - prevention is better than cure!
