Late winter weather calls for some seriously comforting drinks. So we headed over to Kittichai in the 60 Thompson Hotel to find a drink that can sooth the cold weather and make us dream of a tropical location.

What we ended up with was the Kittichai Hot Toddy, a twist on the classic with some new Thai flavors. For this cocktail we add spices to give extra flavor and then add the tropical Mekhong, a liquor that is distilled in Thailand and made primarily from sugar cane.

To make the cocktail, we start by adding three star anise, 1 teaspoon of fresh cloves, one cinnamon stick, and a dollop of Calamansi honey to a small teapot. Add 8 ounces of hot water and then let the mixture sit for approximately two minutes. In a glass, add 2 ounces of Mekhong whiskey and then top it off with the mixture from the teapot. Enjoy instantly while it’s hot!

Watch the video above to see how to make the Kittichai Hot Toddy or head to Kittichai to have the pros make it for you.
