Hipster Toddy

Frenet is the bitter Italian digestif that’s very “of the moment.” When sampled neat (on its own, with no ice or mixers) you may taste notes of eucalyptus, wood, tobacco, leather or myrrh. Bottom line: it’s potent stuff.

What’s amazing about this toddy, though, is how well the bitter Frenet blends with the other ingredients, resulting in a smooth, drinkable cocktail. I think this one is even easier to sip than a classic toddy, and it’s certainly one of the more approachable ways to try Frenet.



Combine the rye, Frenet, bitters and simple syrup in an Irish coffee mug. Top with hot water. Garnish with an expressed orange peel.
