Enter the Caramel Hot Toddy, a delightful variation of the classic Hot Toddy that adds a touch of caramel sweetness and a whole lot of indulgence to your evening ritual.

The Components of a Caramel Hot Toddy:

1. Whiskey or Bourbon: The heart and soul of a Hot Toddy, whiskey or bourbon lends its warmth and complexity to the drink. Its rich, smoky notes provide a solid foundation for the caramel infusion.

It's what transforms the traditional Hot Toddy into a caramelized masterpiece. You can either buy ready-made caramel syrup or make your own by melting sugar and butter together until it turns golden brown and silky.

3. Hot Water:

4. Lemon Juice: A squeeze of fresh lemon juice adds a touch of brightness and acidity to balance the sweetness of the caramel, creating a harmonious flavor profile.

5. Garnish: A lemon twist, cinnamon stick, or a drizzle of extra caramel sauce can be used as a garnish to enhance the drink's aroma and presentation.
