Whisky Mac Toddy

Whisky Mac Toddy hot cocktail with Scotch whisky, ginger wine, and hot water

The Whisky Mac Toddy is just a Whisky Mac topped with hot water – but something magical happens in this addition, transforming it into something soft, gentle, and warming.

Scotch whisky and ginger wine are a solid pair, if a bit strongly-flavored; when those flavors are heated and lengthened, subtle new flavor compounds emerge. The boggy smoke and the sharp ginger flavors recede, allowing fruit and wood flavors to take center stage.

Ingredients

Instructions

Pre-heat a heatproof glass or mug by pouring in near-boiling water, swirling around a bit, and dumping out. Add the spirits to the glass, and top with 3.5 ounces (or about 100 mL) of hot water. No garnish is required, but a slice of candied ginger wouldn’t be unwelcome.
