A ‘Toddy’ is a mixed drink that usually contains alcohol and is served hot. Traditionally they were consumed before bed or in cold, damp weather, but nowadays they are enjoyed whenever preferable.  

Ingredients

  • 4 tea bags
  • 24 ounces boiling water
  • 1 lime, cut into 1/2-inch rounds
  • long zest of 1 small orange, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 3-inch piece of ginger, cut into 8 pieces
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 8 ounces white rum

Directions

  1. Place the tea bags into the boiling water and steep for 5 minutes.
  2. Divide the orange zest, lime rounds, ginger and sugar between 4 mugs and gently muddle to release their natural oils. Pour 2 ounces of rum to each mug and then top with 6 ounces of the steeped tea.
  3. Stir the mixture well to combine and then serve immediately.
