Built on a classic toddy template, this drink incorporates the natural pairing of scotch and bittersweet marmalade into the formula. It’s up to you whether you want to strain out the preserve’s citrus shred, but it’s fully edible and makes a nice, English-inflected addition to this winter warmer. Alternatively, you could replace the water with black or Earl grey tea.
- In a small saucepan, add the water, lemon juice, syrup, and marmalade, and heat until steaming. Pour into a mug, add Scotch, and stir gently. Garnish with the orange wheel half and a dusting of freshly grated nutmeg.
