Move over whisky, the gin hot toddy is in town!

Hot toddies have been around for centuries. Hailed as a cure for the common cold, hot toddies were often prescribed as soon as symptoms appeared. And there is some evidence that it might actually work. A hot toddy has a spirit base, usually whisky, with hot water added, honey and lemon and often infused with all manner of spices form fresh ginger, nutmeg, cloves, mace and cinnamon sticks.
