Sportsman’s Club Whiskey Hot Toddy

We love a good hot toddy on a cold winter night, and we’re always on the lookout for inventive new twists on the classic recipe. Imagine our delight when we came across this lovely riff from Graham Heubach at Chicago’s Sportsman’s Club, with its lovely fall flavors of port and orange and cinnamon.

Heubach’s recipe calls for tawny port, a variety with more age and sweetness than ruby port. We’ve tried it both ways, and find the distinction to be minimal; use whatever you’ve got on hand.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
