Improved Hot Toddy


What do you do when you desperately need a Hot Toddy and the lemons in your fridge are at least a month old? In the winter of 2017, instead of walking 50 feet from her apartment to re-up, PUNCH’s Talia Baiocchi grabbed a bottle of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar—the answer to all that ails—and used it as a replacement. Big ups to necessity being the mother of invention: we’ll never look at the Hot Toddy the same way again.


Serving: 1

  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 3/4 ounce Trees Knees Spicy Maple
  • 3/4 ounce apple cider vinegar
  • hot water, to top

  1. Add all ingredients to a tempered mug, add hot water and stir until the syrup is dissolved.
