This recipe is excerpted from Good Drinks: Alcohol-Free Drinks for When You're Not Drinking for Any Reason by Julia Bainbridge. Bainbridge says: "Jim Meehan was my first-ever boss out of college. He is a legend in the bartending world, and I had the privilege of being his assistant on Food & Wine's 2007 cocktail guide, a book of drink recipes the magazine used to publish annually. He’s remained a supporter and a friend ever since, and now here I am, writing my own book, to which he so graciously contributed. Jim’s drink is a toddy inspired by the Master Cleanse (!), and he calls it 'a post snow-shoveling cocktail.' If the flavor is too concentrated for you, simply add another ounce or two of hot water."
