    Serving Suggestions

    • Serve your hot toddy with a slice of lemon, a cinnamon stick, or a small piece of crystallized ginger.
    • For an extra special treat, float a scoop of vanilla ice cream in your toddy. The heat from the drink will slightly melt the ice cream and create a delicious creamy beverage.
    • If you prefer a non-alcoholic toddy, try substituting apple cider or cranberry juice for the whiskey, rum, or brandy.
