Hot Toddy Station

And of course, no Scottish wedding would be complete without a Hot Toddy Station. A Hot Toddy is a warm, comforting drink made with whisky, honey, lemon, and hot water. It's the perfect way to warm up on a chilly Scottish evening and adds a cosy touch to your wedding celebration.
