The Nutty By Nature at Stitch plays with cold and hot textures

Cristiano Beretta's take on the Hot Toddy is a little unconventional.



Long-time fans of Sydney small bar, Stitch, know them for tailoring a good time. And the basement level bar is channeling a sense of wonder with its unconventional take on the classic Hot Toddy, called Nutty By Nature.

It comes from group bars manager Cristiano Beretta, and features Aberfeldy 12 along with a complementary cast of flavours: nougat, local Sydney honey, grapefruit, and walnut. But it's the contrasting temperatures at play — a hot, golden drink capped with a cold, nutty, nougat foam — that really brings the wonder.

Nutty By Nature


  • 45ml Aberfeldy 12
  • 20ml Urban Beehive Sydney Honey
  • 20ml grapefruit juice
  • 2 dashes black walnut bitters
  • 2 dashes grapefruit bitters
  • hot water
  • nougat tea foam on top


  1. Add ingredients to a heatproof glass or mug.
  2. Pour a nougat and tea foam on top of the drink.
