Jim Meehan's hot toddy

It's Halloween, the cool weather has set in, and there's a pumpkin-spiced something everywhere you turn. It's official: winter's coming. And for cocktail enthusiasts, that can only mean one thing: to warm our chilled hands and protect our weary immune systems, it's time to bust out the hot toddy. For this elegant version made with Scotch whisky and chamomile tea, acclaimed mixologist Jim Meehan of the JBF Award–winning PDT uses St-Germain to add delicate, floral undertones to this wintertime sipper. Get the recipe here for a decidedly cozy start to your weekend.
