We’re all familiar with the Hot Toddy. Good Dog (224 S 15th St.) bartender Nemanya Popovich decided to put his own spin on it.

“The hot toddy is usually made with dark teas,” Popovich said. “When you’re a bartender you’re allowed to break the rules.

Popovich substitutes a regular tea bag with a mint chamomile tea. “I thought something a little sweeter might work,” he said.



What you’ll need:

St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur

Honey simply syrup

Stravinsky Vodka

Mint chamomile tea (or other preferred light tea)

1) Combine 1/2 oz. of St. Germain's Elderflower Liqueur with 1/2 oz. of honey simple syrup.

2) Pour St. Germain's Elderflower Liquer, honey simply syrup mixture into glass.

3) Add 1 oz. of Stravinsky vodka.

4) Fill glass with hot water.

5) Add mint chamomile tea bag.

6) Peel lemon, squeeze zest and drop into glass.
