Bartender’s tips and advice

  • A Hot Toddy is a mixture of a spirit (Gin in this case, but also Whisky or others), honey and hot water. Spices are added according to personal preferences. Some believe this mixture to relief symptoms of a cold. It’s a popular drink in Scotland and there also referred to as Hot Whisky.
  • Always try to use fresh squeezed lemon juice for cocktails. Using fresh juices is key to preparing classic cocktails with a great taste. There´s at least 1 oz. (= 3 cl) of juice in every lemon.
