South African Hot Toddy Recipe

South African Hot Toddy recipe from one of my new fav blogs!


  • 1 cup raw milk (or organic low temp pasteurized milk)
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1/2 – 1 full jigger of whiskey (depending on your tolerance!)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric (optional)


The basic recipe is to warm milk on medium heat until it is just scalded (foaming around the edges). Pour into a cup with the whiskey and honey and stir to combine. Her friend used this butter warmer to warm the milk and she just ordered one because it will be great for so many uses in the future including warming milk, butter and making sauces.

When she made this the second time she added cinnamon and turmeric to the milk because she pretty much adds them to everything! IShe loved the drink both ways so experiment and see which option you like better and comment here if you add any other spices that seem interesting to share with everyone!
