Make a Hot Toddy at home that’s better than most of the professional versions you’re likely to encounter!  This Oaxacan slant uses mezcal, lime juice & honey.


Units Scale

(for 1 drink)


  1. Pre-heat a mug, or other insulated cup.
  2. Juice the lime(s).
  3. Combine honey, lime juice, water – and cayenne, if using (see “Notes,” below) – in a small saucepan.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil, then turn OFF the heat and add the mezcal.
  5. Pour into your pre-heated cup, and top with a dried chili.


  • Be sure to go easy on the cayenne – in a hot drink it can easily become too much!
