I’ve never had a Hot Toddy, have you? Since the holidays are approaching, I thought it would be fun to try. The one question I have is, if a cocktail has tea in it, is it healthy? I’m just going to say yes. I think an Apple Brandy Hot Toddy is the perfect thing to warm me up AND chill me out.
In a measuring cup, steep 1 chai or cinnamon-apple tea bag in ¾ cup boiling water. Meanwhile, add 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 Tbsp. honey, and 3 Tbsp. apple brandy (like Applejack) to a mug and stir. When the tea is brewed, remove and discard the tea bag, pour the tea into the mug, and garnish with lemon and a cinnamon stick.
Ahhhh, now I have to go relax somewhere to drink my “tea.”
May your days be boozy and bright!
