  • Summary

    A hot toddy is made many different ways all around the world, but at its simplest, it’s just hot water, lemon juice, honey, and booze—a cure for whatever ails you in the wintertime. This is a more festive, spiced version with a black tea base. English breakfast tea is especially good with the black pepper and star anise, but Earl Grey would be nice, too. Decaf versions of those teas are also totally fair game.

    Ingredients

    • 5 whole star anise
    • 2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
    • 8 black tea bags
    • 3/4 cup honey, plus more to taste
    • 2 cinnamon sticks
    • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more to taste
    • 2 cups rye whiskey
    • Lemon zest twists or lemon wheels, for serving
    • 4- to 6-quart slow cooker and cheesecloth
