Happy Hot Toddy

Happy Hot Toddy

It has been cold recently for us (or at least San Diego cold), and we decided to drink hot toddies on the porch the other night, well I guess it’s not really that cold…  

I did mention it is San Diego right!?!

Anyhow, we made hot toddies and gave it a twist on the sweetener and made a syrup with happyness tea. 

This definitely changed this drink for me and now I have Happyness Tea Syrup ready to go at all times.


4 ounces Hot water
2 ounces Ilegal Mezcal,
½ ounces Happyness Tea Syrup
¾ ounces lemon juice
1 lemon wheel
1 cinnamon stick


In a teapot or saucepan, bring the water to a simmer.
Pour the hot water into a mug.
Add Mezcal, honey and lemon juice. Stir until all the the ingredients into the hot water.
Taste, and add lemon juice for more zing.

Garnish with a lemon round and cinnamon stick (if using). Enjoy!
