We've been making a drink like this in my family for 3 generations. We do the tea 1 gigger of whiskey or bourbon honey and lemon in place of the milk. Absolute divinity and has become a comfort drink--especially when you're under the weather! Read More

I made The McCuddy for me and my husband for Father's Day 2008. This drink has alot of strength. I broke out in a sweat. Serving The McCuddy in a large glass helps vetilate the fumes from the whiskey. This drink gives a strong awake and tastes delicious. I used soy milk for milk intolerance and it stood up well to the Scotch. This is not a drink for the faint of heart. My husband said "If you drink ten of these you won't be drunk you'll be Scottish!"

My stomach can't take the idea of whiskey & milk right now but subbed with lemon juice this is my idea of a perfect cold & flu season toddy. Definitely enough whiskey to make it count but after the first sip so smooth and silky and comforting. I made mine with the first teabag I grabbed a Chai spice and it's just awesome. Read More

I was nursing a cold on a cold dreary day and thought this drink might hit the spot and boy did it! This is my new hot toddy. The slight amount of milk imparted a silkiness that smoothly bound the other ingredients together making it easier on the tummy. Wonderful. Read More
