Palm Springs Winter Cocktail Recipe: Mezcal Hot Toddy

Palm Springs Mural at the Hyatt in Palm Springs

TGIT! Cocktail Thursday has arrived and it is a welcome arrival. I have a special Southern California cocktail for you today. It comes from a new restaurant in Palm Springs: Birba. This is an updated Italian restaurant where it’s all about the cool, and sharing with friends. I cannot wait to go back to Palm Springs and enjoy the southern California meets Italy vibe that this place has going on. Until then, we have the Mezcal Hot Toddy cocktail recipe straight from Birba to hold us over.

Mescal Hot Toddy Cocktail Recipe

yields 1 cocktail

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz mezcal
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz honey
  • 4 oz hot water
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 orange wedge

Directions

  • In a snifter mix honey and hot water until honey is dissolved.
  • Stir in mezcal and lemon juice.
  • Squeeze lemon wedge and orange wedge over beverage and garnish with fresh fruit or place the squeezed fruit directly into glass!

Doesn’t that just sound fantastic? It’s southern California in a glass. Spring may be in sight but this warm cocktail is perfect for winter. The switch of whiskey for mescal is unexpected and very SoCal, but if that is not your style feel free to have it the classic way with your choice of whiskey. And if you cannot find mescal use your favorite tequila. This is perfect for cozying up on the couch together or if you make your way to Southern California, you can enjoy this winter cocktail with your dinner outside surrounded by outdoor heaters. Doesn’t that sounds nice?

May we all could just make a road trip to Palm Springs and order it at Birba. I think that would be a long car ride worth taking this winter.

What is your favorite cooler weather cocktail?
