Oaxacan Hot Toddy (mezcal cocktails)

Oaxacan Hot Toddy


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


(for 1 drink)

  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 ounce honey
  • 1 1/2 ounces water
  • 1 1/2 ounces mezcal
  • whole dried Thai chilies, for garnish
  • pinch of cayenne (optional)


  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!
