The classic Hot Toddy is a blend of water, sugar, spirit, and spice—a template that’s pretty much endlessly variable. This version is perfect for a cool, lakeside August evening in the North Country, and features spicy tea, sweet and creamy (yet dairy-free) coconut, and the bold, vanilla-accented flavors of Crown Royal Deluxe. It’s also the polar opposite of labor intensive, requiring roughly the same effort it takes to make a cup of tea—while yielding disproportionately delicious results.
