GIN TODDY

Hot gin, lemon and honey or sugar. Such a simple drink, and one that has been around in various incarnations nearly as long as gin. A few centuries ago, people waxed lyrical about the welcoming ring of the toddy stick, a stirring stick used to mix this drink over countless tavern fires in pewter or copper vessels. The lemon was optional, a luxury for most. A splash of raspberry shrub might easily replace the imported citrus in rural establishments. Or perhaps no sour note at all, just the spirit, sugar or honey and boiling water.

50ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin
1 teaspoon honey
25ml fresh lemon juice or raspberry shrub
To garnish: A lemon wheel and a cinnamon stick

Bring a kettle of water to the boil. Combine the ingredients in a coffee mug. Add 100-150ml boiling water. Stir. Garnish with a lemon wheel and a cinnamon stick.
