The hot toddy has its roots in India, where it was created by fermenting the sap of palm trees. It has been around since the late 1700s, and is known as a hot alcoholic beverage that even has medicinal properties. There are hot toddies that use different liquors, including rum, brandy, and whiskey. The United States also has regional versions of the drink. For example, as with many cocktails, the Southern United States tends to use bourbon as the main liquor.

For whatever reason, in Wisconsin, brandy is almost always used for a hot toddy. It is a go-to drink when it comes to unwelcome cold weather, and the ginger and honey involved often is said to help treat colds, although this is by no means an official recommendation by a medical expert of any sort – simply more of an anecdote or a homemade remedy.


  • 1 cup of hot water
  • 2 ounces of whiskey (or other liquor)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice


  1. Boil or microwave water until hot.
  2. Pour the water into a mug of your choice.
  3. Pour in the honey, and proceed to stir until the honey dissolves.
  4. Add the lemon juice.


  • Mug (or other container)
  • Stirring stick/spoon
