We asked bartender Sarah at the Old Town Social in Chicago to make a special drink in honor of this week’s weather. Something strong and something we could make with just the stuff in our cupboards. Nothing too fancy. The result is the Polar Vortex Hot Toddy. 

3oz Makers Mark

2 Dashes Cinnamon

1 Dash All Spice

2-3 Drops Vanilla Extract

1 tsp Brown Sugar (possibly more based on the sweetness of the bourbon)

3 drops agave nectar (or honey)

Hot water (2 times the amount of other ingredients)

Cinnamon Stick and Lemon Peel (for garnish)

Add all ingredients besides water and agave nectar together in a mug. Stir and add hot water

Slowly add 3 drops of Agave Nectar and stir again.

Rim mug with lemon peel and add to drink as a garnish

Add cinnamon stick for garnish if available.

Note: Make sure to stir the cocktail occasionally (with the cinnamon stick) to mix the spices that have settled on the bottle of the cocktail. This reinvigorates the flavor of the spices in the drink.
