  3. In Dublin, Ireland, Dr. Robert Bently Todd would recommend a brew of hot whisky, lemon and cinnamon.

These are just a few theories about the origins of the hot toddy. One other story is that the Hot Toddy was a drink for Scottish women who didn’t enjoy the taste of Scotch. In American history, the legend goes that colonists used toddies as a liquid courage during the...
