Herbal Toddies

M. Quinn Sweeney from Libation Lab mixed up some great hot toddies using Ayala's Herbal Water. He writes:

All of these recipes follow the same ratio - 1/4 cup Herbal Water : 1 ounce spirits : 1 tablespoon sweetener. Microwave the water in a mug for 2 minutes, stir in the spirit and sweetener and and garnish with a lemon wedge.

  • Cinnamon Orange Peel - Irish whiskey - maple syrup
  • Lemongrass Mint Vanilla - bourbon - brown sugar
  • Ginger Lemon Peel - Tequila - agave nectar
