Per usual, I came up with this idea while roaming the aisles of the grocery store. I was picking a few things up to make winter cocktails for my Christmas Cocktails series, and I saw ‘Winter Jack’. One thing is for. sure. I DO NOT like whiskey.

Well…once I pretended to like it because I was going through a Toby Kieth phase and wanted to be a ‘whiskey girl’. Anyways, the phase passed and I stopped pretending.

I grabbed the bottle because I thought Greg might enjoy it, but when I opened it up, it smelled delicious, and I decided to give it a try. It was really good! Really sweet, but really good. So then my wheels started turning… 

I decided that a warm winter cocktail is always a winner, so why not warm up some of that Winter Jack, add a tiny bit of Buttershots for good measure, and some honey? Staying true to an original Toddy, I added a squeeze of lemon juice, and let me tell you, it was goooood. 

Don’t skip the lemon part, that’s the real game changer in this cocktail. 

Whether you serve this at Christmas Eve or enjoy it slopeside, this warm butterscotch toddy cocktail is the perfect thing to sip on a chilly winter day.
