Chartreuse Toddy

Adapted from Winter Drinks by the Editors of PUNCH

While workshopping riffs on the classic hot toddy, we wanted to create something that played close enough to the original tune, but felt a bit more tony, more deluxe, more French. This combination of Cognac (French) and the herbal liqueur Chartreuse (French) plus the usual toddy trappings, is the perfect amount of French.
