I think toddies might be Irish, they've been used as a remedy in my family for years with the main ingredient usually brandy rather than whisky. In fact, I had a great aunt "Tottie" (nickname) and as a child I always thought her name was actually "Toddy" and that she must have had a tendency to over-indulge in this famous family remedy!.

Not Cornish, I suspect, but what about the good old 'toddy'? Lemon juice,
honey, whisky etc. My Chilean friends make this with the addition of
soaked chilli peppers [!!] - they reckon it's guaranteed to 'knock the
socks off' any bug.
