Two Companies Bring a Creative Spin to the Classic Hot Toddy

Two Companies Put Together Three Unique Seasonal Hot Toddy Recipes

With the coldest temps this winter taking over the East Coast, two companies, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey and Portland based, Smith Teamaker, have three seasonal hot toddy recipes in time for National Hot Toddy Day!

The two companies have partnered this season for a creative spin on the classic hot toddy, the unofficial drink of winter festivities.  See below for three recipes created with Bulleit Bourbon and Bulleit Rye, perfect to serve this winter at gatherings with friends and on National Hot Toddy Day.

Hot for Rye Toddy

  1. Place 1 Smith Teamaker Red Nectar sachet in a cup or mug
  2. Add boiling water, leaving room for the whiskey
  3. Steep 5 min
  4. Add 1 1/4 oz. Bulleit Rye
  5. Remove tea sachet

Recommended twists or additions:

  • Add orange peel
  • Add 1-2 cloves
  • Add 1 cinnamon stick
  • Add 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • Garnish with lemon wedge

Tasting Notes from Tony Tellin, Smith Head Teamaker: The wood and fruit top notes and creamy center of the tea complement the vanilla and oak character of Bulleit Rye. The orange peel adds citrus, building on the mulled spices and natural spice elements of Bulleit Rye. Rooibos and Honeybush herbal infusions are both grown and sourced from South Africa. This is a comforting Hot Toddy best enjoyed in front of a roaring fire.

Kentucky Meadow Hot Toddy

two companies

  1. Place 1 Smith Teamaker Meadow sachet in a cup or mug
  2. Add boiling water, leaving room for the whiskey
  3. Steep 5 min
  4. Add 1 1/4 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
  5. Remove sachet

Recommended twists or additions:

  • Add green apple peel
  • Add cinnamon stick
  • Add 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup
  • Garnish with apple wedge
  • Shave nutmeg on top of final beverage

Tasting Notes from Tony Tellin, Smith Head Teamaker: This cocktail has flavor profiles of maple and apple, a perfect pair for colder weather. The chamomile in our Meadow tea pairs well with apple and has a floral, woody character. Adding green apple skin adds tannin, acidity and further drives apple top notes and  flavor. Together cinnamon and nutmeg create a mulled spice and apple pie like spice complexity.

Winter on the Frontier Toddy

two companies

  1. Place 1 Smith Teamaker Lord Bergamot sachet in a cup or mug
  2. Add boiling water leaving room for the whiskey
  3. Steep 5 min
  4. Add 1 1/4 oz. Bulleit Rye
  5. Remove sachet

Recommended twists or additions:

  • Add lemon peel
  • Add French lavender
  • Add pink peppercorns
  • Garnish with lemon

Tasting Notes from Tony Tellin, Smith Head Teamaker:  Bergamot is known for its citrus and floral notes. Adding lavender and lemon peel is my favorite way to enjoy this Hot Toddy. I get a lot of vanilla from Bulleit Rye, making a drink that’s a little floral, but not too sweet.
