The most common Hot Toddy recipe consists of bourbon, honey, hot water and lemon. The cocktail's origins are unknown, but we do know that it is an old drink, believed to have been invented in Scotland in the 1700s. The country's staple liquor, Scotch, had a harsh smoky flavor that women were not fond of.
