Mezcal Monday: Don Amado Toddy

Well it is Mezcal Monday, there is a chill in the air and I am feeling a bit 'under the weather' this week. So what could be better than a Toddy made with Don Amado Reposado
This drink is all about comfort. It does have a a lovely layered complexity, but mostly it is quiet and reassuring.
The ingredients are simple (they should be for a toddy): Don Amado Reposado (click to read my tasting notes), Ron Miel (honey rum from the Canary Islands) and garnished with citrus zest.


Don Amado Toddy

2 Oz Don Amado Reposado 
1 Oz Ron Miel
Hot water (or tea)
Heat cup first, build ingredients into warmed cup, adding hot water last.Garnish with what you have have handy: citrus, cinnamon, grated nutmeg--whatever tickles your fancy. 

With Don Amado and Ron Miel, I just want their flavors to shine so I only added citrus zest. Also after the picture I dropped the zests in.
