Ginger is fantastically aromatic when warmed and this Hot Ginger Toddy is a great example. There are quite a few different ways to get this same taste and most of the older recipes involve ginger syrup, which is great, but the new Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur has made this toddy even easier to make. As all of the Hot Ginger Toddy recipes indicate, bourbon is the preferred whiskey because it seems to be the best compliment to the ginger.


  • 1 ounce whiskey (bourbon)
  • 1/2 ounce ginger liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 ounces water (hot)

Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the liqueur, honey, and lemon in an Irish coffee glass.

  2. Top with hot water.

  3. Stir.
