  • Summary

    This winter, two things are inevitable: I'll receive a questionable piece of clothing from my in-laws for Christmas and I'll catch a cold. I'm still working on how to handle the oddball socks, but I think I've figured out the stuffy-nose thing. My cure: the seasonal mixture of booze, water, spices, citrus, and honey, otherwise known as the Hot Toddy. It soothes, coddles, and makes you feel all is right with the world—the cocktail equivalent of Mom. And even if the classic tipple doesn't keep your cold or Old Man Winter at bay, repeated doses will make you forget about both. My current favorite recipe comes from Matt Tanner at Houston's Anvil Bar & Refuge, whose addition of house-made apple-infused bourbon is a spirited stroke of genius. —ANDREW KNOWLTON

    Ingredients

    • 6 tablespoons bourbon (or better yet, Apple Bourbon, in which case you'll use 1 tablespoon honey)
