Traditional Hot Toddy Recipes Made With V.I.P Jiu 8 Baijiu

A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down is an old saying, but what better way to take the medicine than in a hot toddy.

The word toddy originally comes from India, and was a drink made by fermenting the sap of palm trees. Its earliest form was a beverage made of alcohol liquor with hot water, sugar and spices.

A hot toddy glass is a cup like glass, especially made to take hot water. It has a handle for ease of use and holds eight and a half fluid ounces.
