The hot toddy truly is the perfect cold weather cocktail. We opted for maple syrup to sweeten the drink, but feel free to use honey if you prefer. Same goes for the type of tea you use; we love the subtle orange spice flavors matched with the bourbon for a toasty holiday vibe, but lemon-ginger tea would work great too.
