Who wants to go through the work of building a real fire when there are Toddies to be tippling?

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Aged Mezcal
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1 oz Honey
  • 4 oz Hot Water
  • Lemon Peel

Directions: Combine the first three ingredients in a footed glass mug. Pour hot water from the kettle over the top. Stir and garnish with a lemon peel.
