Classic Mixology: Cocktail & Mixed Drink Recipes


The Toddy is a simple drink of some spirit, sugar and water. There's not much difference between a Toddy, Sling or Skin, except that a Toddy is generally (but not always) served hot. A Toddy can be made with bourbon, brandy, gin, rum or rye but it's best with Scotch whisky.

A Skin is essentially a Toddy with lemon, so they're included in this category.
