RepYourWater Co-founder Garrison Doctor created this playlist to be played while drinking this cocktail from Locke + Co distilling. Enjoy the RepYourWater Black Manhattan Playlist and hit play.

Even though Garrison has no direct family members that fish, his love for fish and fishing was evident at a very early age. After he begged his dad for his first fly rod on his 10th birthday, this passion was sealed. His love for art and design also carried throughout his life. RepYourWater is a combination and vision of these pursuits. If he is not in the RepYourWater office working on a new design, he may be out in “Big Blue”, his trusty raft, throwing a streamer at a juicy bank and soaking in the wild.

Apple Cider Hot Toddy

Locke + Co. Apple Cider Hot Toddy

Warm and cozy, this Apple Cider Hot Toddy is perfect for sipping on my the fire this holiday season. You can use hard apple cider for a strong treat!

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Locke + Co. Aspen Aged Rye
  • 4 oz apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Preparation

  1. Combine the apple cider, lemon juice, honey, and cinnamon stick in a small saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat, then reduce heat and simmer for about five minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, stir in the whiskey, and serve immediately.

Notes

Look for unfiltered apple cider if you can find it. It has a lot more apple-tastic flavor to it!

To make this for a large crowd, use the following measurements: 1/5 bottle of whiskey, 1/2 gallon of apple cider, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 2/3 cup of honey, and 4 cinnamon sticks. Makes 16 drinks. Keep simmering on the stove with a ladle and mugs nearby, or pour all into a slow cooker, and let cook on high for two hours before serving.
