We received a review copy of The Foreigner to help with creating our The Name Drop Toddy.
Winter is in full force. Though here in Phoenix it isn’t so cold. That being said, we really enjoy toddies on cooler nights. When we were approached to create a recipe for The Foreigner, we thought a toddy would be perfect! Therefore, we are excited to share our newest recipe, The Name Drop Toddy!
In The Foreigner, “Chan stars as humble London businessman Quan, whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love — his teenage daughter — is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat- and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.”
Typically, a hot toddy is made with bourbon or rum. When creating the recipe for The Name Drop Toddy we wanted to use ingredients that were more regional to the film. So instead of the aforementioned spirits, we used scotch and Barenjager. We also made it a little less spirit forward by making the base of the cockail Earl Grey tea. Fun Fact: Earl Grey tea has been consumed in England since around 1820. Additionally, honey and lemon notes were also added to give the drinker the feeling of drinking hot tea.
We hope you enjoy our Name Drop Toddy! Have you tried any other cocktails made with tea? Let us know in the comments below or tag us using the hashtag #GeekEats on social media! Also, be sure to check out The Foreigner which is now available on Digital HD and Blu-ray!
