Manhattan Central: The Hot Toddy

posted in: News | 0

Our series of Manhattan Central concludes with The Hot Toddy.  Often used to warm the soul on a chilly evening or to remedy a cold or the flu, the preparation of The Hot Toddy can have many variations.  Our version of the drink uses Lexington Bourbon, with a rating of 95 by Tasting Panel Magazine.  

 

At 86 proof, Lexington Bourbon combines the highest quality select grains of rye, malted barley and corn with purified water. The rye provides the perfect level of spice, while the malted barley allows the sweetness of the corn to peak through, creating a sensational taste.  The resulting flavor boasts deep aromas of the aged oak with a hint of vanilla.  Lexington Bourbon is guaranteed to make a serious impression on your palate with every sip.
