Jameson Hot Toddy Tea


If you were to research the origins of the Hot Toddy you might find a few different stories. For this recipe we will go with it’s Irish origins for our March highlight. It was believed that an Irish doctor by the name of Robert Bently Todd invented this treat as a way to ward off any illnesses that might ail his patients. His original recipe consisted of hot whiskey, cinnamon, and sugar water. Since this first record of the drink the recipe has changed based on the region and the drinker. Our version of the drink implements the use of our Irish Breakfast tea, which we have steeped in the whiskey for added flavor!

Follow our recipe below to make one for yourself this St. Patrick’s Day.
