Jerry Thomas Toddy

Jerry Thomas Toddy

In the annals of time, Jerry Thomas will go down as one of the most important bartenders.  He created many of the drinks we still enjoy today (the Tom Collins, Tom and Jerry, to name just a couple).  Jerry Thomas, more importantly, in 1862 put pen to paper, and is credited as the first person to capture the until-then oral history of the great American cocktail.  This cocktail is an early American toddy, a great cocktail to warm you up on a cold colonial night.  Though the recipe is deceptively simple, the cocktail is deeply satisfying.

1 tsp sugar (we'll use honey)
3-4 oz hot water
2 oz Roundstone Rye whisky
nutmeg, orange slice

Combine the sugar (or honey) and hot water in a mug or punch glass until the sugar is dissolved.  Add 2 oz of Roundstone Rye, then add an orange slice and a few scrapings of fresh nutmeg.  Enjoy immediately!
