This is a nice recipe. I would change one thing however, that is to use Whisky instead of Whiskey. Being Scottish myself, it just has to be... :) Read More

I also made it with a tea bag. Added more water. Didn't have the stick cinnamon or cloves so just used a bit of cinnamon sprinkled on top. Read More

I really think there may be an error in this recioe. I was using an ordinary 8 oz drinking cup so I made this with water amount 6 oz. Otherwise this is a decent recipe. I have the flu and made it tonight it was very easy to make. Read More

I made this for two flu-sick people who are staying with me at the moment. It warmed them up and also it shut them up;) Just the ticket! Read More

I followed the advise of two other raters - larger quantities & used tea as my base liquid. I made the Christmas Spice Tea really strong and added a little more whiskey to it. After the first two, I didn't care about my cough anymore! LOL. I was just angry to discover that I'd been making this for years but withour as much whiskey in the recipe! LMAO!! Read More

Great recipe but I changed one very important thing- I added a tea bag in the first step. I used orange spice tea but I hear earl grey is pretty good too. This gives the Toddy a bit more flavor so it doesn't taste like hot watered down whiskey. I also used burbon and it warmed me right up! Read More

I'm feeling the first signs of a sore throat so I wanted a hot drink. This was very tasty. I didn't have whiskey so I used Rum instead. This only fills up about 1/5th of a coffee mug though. If you want to fill the mug you'll need to multiply the ingredients by five (that should knock you out for the night!) or else add a lot more water. Read More
