Warm Up With a Penelope Bourbon Hot Toddy

In honor of National Hot Toddy Day, I'm sharing a simple recipe for a classic hot toddy. This is the perfect drink to have around the holidays, when it's a little chilly out, if you're suffering from a cold (minus the bourbon) or simply just because!

This is not a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. I received a free bottle of Penelope Bourbon through a giveaway on Instagram and decided to incorporate it into this recipe.


1 1/2 ounces of Penelope Bourbon

2-3 teaspoons of honey

2-3 teaspoons of lemon juice

1 lemon round

3/4 cup of water


1. In a tea kettle, boil the water. Once boiled, pour into mug.

2. Add Penelope Bourbon, 2-3 teaspoons of honey and 2-3 teaspoons of lemon juice. Stir all the ingredients until the honey is dissolved. Taste and add more lemon or honey if needed.

3. Garnish drink with a lemon round. You can also add a cinnamon stick for a little extra flavor!
