Making Hot Toddy

Hey Whiskey lovers, today I am making Hot toddy cocktail.. sampling and reviewing my own creation :-). If you all are thinking that I will be biased when rating my own work..the answer is absolutely.Doing it anyway because it is FUN! and most importantly I ENJOYED it.
I had a Hot toddy Cockatail kit from one of the Glenlivet tasting sessions and had saved it so I can share it here with everyone. 
Enjoy the hard work of my labor and make it yourself at home and enjoy with friends and family. It is very easy and fun.
