Whisky Cocktails Made Simple: Hot Toddy and Gold Rush [Video]

A great whisky cocktail doesn’t have to be complex. In fact, some of the most timeless drinks, like the Old Fashioned, Manhattan, or Highball, are simple in structure but have satisfied whisky drinkers for decades. Some classic cocktails don’t even require special ingredients. Take the Hot Toddy and Gold Rush, for instance. Both are made by combining lemon juice, honey, and whisky—ingredients you may already have in your kitchen—and can easily be customized using any variety of garnish or whisky as the base. Get started with this video and you’ll have two easy-to-make cocktails to enjoy throughout the year.
