For the film “Dunkirk” we have collaborated with Cocktail Chameleon Author and Entertaining Expert Mark Addison who created this signature Oscar worthy cocktail, Dunkirk Toddy.
The traditional Hot Toddy recipe is made with whisky but to give the classic Toddy a French twist I substitute equal parts French cognac and Benedictine Dom with its lovely warming flavors and its pronounced herbal and spicy tones.
