Whisky Mac Toddy
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.
- 1½ parts Scotch
- 1 part Ginger wine
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.
