Full Recipe:

Serves 2 per variation
Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Hands-off time: 5-12 hours


3 medium oranges, juiced
2 tbsp honey
2 shots (30ml each) Klipdrift Premium Brandy
1 cup ginger ale
1 cinnamon quill

Serving suggestion:
Cinnamon quill, for the garnish
Orange slices


For the cold toddy:
1. Pour the orange juice into an ice tray and freeze overnight or until solid.
2. Divide the orange juice ice cubes between two cocktail glasses and drizzle a tablespoon of honey over the ice in each glass.
3. Pour a shot of Klipdrift Premium Brandy into each glass and top up with the ginger ale, about ½ a cup each.
4. Using a lighter, heat the bottom end of the cinnamon quill and immediately stir the cinnamon quill through each cold toddy. *Chef’s Tip: heating the quill allows the flavour of the cinnamon to infuse the cold toddy.
5. Garnish with a cinnamon quill and orange slices, serve immediately and ENJOY!

For the hot toddy:
1. Add the orange juice, honey, ginger ale and cinnamon quill to a pot over medium heat. Bring to the boil and lower the heat to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 4-5 minutes to infuse the flavours.
2. Remove the cinnamon quill and divide the warm mixture between 2 heatproof cocktail glasses or mugs. Pour 1 shot of Klipdrift Premium Brandy into each glass.
3. Garnish each hot toddy with a cinnamon quill and an orange slice on the rim, serve immediately and ENJOY!
