Lowland Toddy


Mixologist John deBary uses ginger syrup and licorice tea to create this mocktail rendition of his Scotch whisky-based toddy.

  1. 1/2 ounce Ginger Syrup
  2. 1 licorice tea bag
  3. 4 dried chamomile flowers or 1 chamomile tea bag
  4. 1 rosemary sprig
  5. 8 ounces boiling water
  6. 1 lemon wedge
  1. In a warmed mug or heatproof glass, combine the Ginger Syrup, licorice tea bag, chamomile flowers and rosemary sprig. Pour the boiling water on top and let steep for 5 minutes. Press the liquid from the tea bag and remove the bag, the chamomile flowers and the rosemary sprig. Squeeze the lemon wedge over the drink and drop it in.
