While the summer season and demand for chilled canned cocktails might be winding down, Fishers Island Lemonade has positioned itself as a premier drink for the fall and winter by using it to make a Hot Lemon Toddy.
Fishers Island Lemonade (FIL) is made with all-natural ingredients, including lemon, honey, and spiked with premium distilled Vodka and barrel-aged Whiskey. By simmering FIL with cinnamon sticks and adding a shot of whiskey, the Hot Lemon Toddy is straightforward and easily customizable based on how much additional “kick” is needed to get through the colder months:
- 6oz FIL (half can)
- 1oz Rye Whiskey of choice
- 3 Cinnamon Sticks
- Lemon for garnish
Simmer FIL and two cinnamon sticks in a saucepan over medium heat. Once aromatic with cinnamon, pour the hot mixture into a glass. Add a floater of whiskey, and garnish with a cinnamon stick and lemon wheel.
