This steamy hot toddy stars locally made Herman Marshall Rye. Create your own mulled spice syrup by infusing simple syrup (for sweetening cocktails) with mulling spices—usually a combination of allspice, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, nutmeg and star anise pods. For garnish, Kyle created spiced lemon wheels in a dehydrator.
