If the tea was whiskey

Teaskey/Hot Toddy: Hot tea & Whiskey

Primary Alcohol: Your favorite whiskey

Serving Size: As big of a mug as you can muster

This drink is one of my favorites for those early morning ride-alongs or when it's too cold to make your way downtown. Easily customized to match your alcohol and tea preferences. I generally stick to a green tea, obviously served hot, with Jameson or Jack Daniel's.

Appearance: Dependent on the kind of tea or whiskey you are using, generally a light green to hazel, and how much hooch you are putting in.

Taste: A warm zest of tea flavor, highlighted and accented by a sweetened version of your hard alcohol. It can convince even pure wine drinkers to come to the dark side.

Advice: Serve as hot as possible, as with any tea. Honey and brown sugar can help your friends with weaker stomaches, but a stronger tea may be able to fix the problem. Try with honey whiskey for a purely enjoyable hot beverage.
