Apple Cider Hot Toddy

Description

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

  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.
