I came across this recipe on Facebook of all places (I am a big fan of the Hudson Brewery) and thought it sounded not only really delicious but also like a nice way to end Thanksgiving. I even think you could substitute the hot water for crushed ice (or just ice cubes) and it would be a lovely sip-able over a post Turkey cheese course? Just remember that Hudson Rye is a very unusual rye and has a complex flavor profile unlike other Rye so I would encourage you to splurge on this lovingly made hand-craft local product. And if you can’t find it where you live then take a spin around your favorite liquor store and see if you can find some other small batch Rye to use.
Oh and as I am imagining this as maybe not a Toddy don’t take the name too literally.
In a high large rocks glass or warm mug combine: 1 part Hudson Manhattan Rye, 1 part Port, 1/2 part simple syrup ,1/4 part fresh lemon, 2 parts hot water (or ice and maybe a splash of soda).
Stir and finish with an orange slice half of which is delicately dusted with fresh nutmeg.
Kind of like a funky version of a Manhattan.
