We have a winter storm on the way in the Northeast so thought we'd share a favorite cold weather cocktail. This is a spin on a classic hot toddy with mezcal and chai tea, giving it a spike of smoke & cinnamon spice.
- 1 chai tea bag
- 4 oz hot water
- 1.5 oz mezcal
- 1/2 oz lemon juice
- 1/2-3/4 oz honey (depending on desired sweetness)
- 1 lemon, lime or orange wedge
- 1 cinnamon stick
Add tea bag, hot water, mezcal & lemon juice to a double rimmed glass cup or coffee mug.
Stir to dissolve honey.
Garnish with citrus wedge and cinnamon stick.
