The Tangerine Daisy Cocktail

October 5, 2017 (Last Updated: November 5, 2020)

This medicinal whisky citrus cocktail is perfect for when you’re craving a hot toddy, but your fever is a little too high.

Heaven knows I love to drink Hot Toddies when I get a cold, but I had the toastiest fever recently that just wouldn’t break, so this Tangerine Daisy was the perfect medicine! It didn’t bring my fever down, per say, but it sure made me feel much better!

How to Make a Flat, Daisy Lemon & Clove Garnish

If you’re wondering how to make a pretty little garnish like this, it’s quite simple. All you have to do is make a little hole in the center of a small lemon slice with a tooth pick and pull some tiny daisies through, leaving some of the stem to poke through the bottom.

Then, add cloves around the side to hug the side of the glass. You’d be surprised how sturdy it can be when you leave your stem long enough and place your cloves tightly to the glass 😉
