There are many ways to make a Hot Toddy.  A lot of them suck.  This one is pretty good.

If you want it to be piping hot, build everything except the hot water in a shaker tin in a hot water bath.  Once warmed through, pour this into the pre-heated mug and top with hot water.

I know, pimento bitters are not exactly growing on trees.  I just happened to have Dale DeGroff's when making this toddy.  You can substitute a barspoon of pimento dram or failing that, a dusting of nutmeg.

While visiting the Oregon coast, I came up with a variation I call a North Coast Toddy:

  • 1 1/2 oz dark rum (Goslings)
  • 3/4 oz ginger syrup
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 2 dashes pimento bitters
  • 4 oz hot water
