Warm and cozy, this Apple Cider Hot Toddy is perfect for sipping on by the fire this holiday season.
- 4 ounces (1/2 cup) apple cider
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 ounces (1/4 cup) bourbon
- Combine the apple cider, lemon juice, honey, and cinnamon stick in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat, then reduce heat and simmer for about five minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the bourbon, and serve immediately.
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 crowd, use the following measurements: 1/2 gallon of apple cider, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 2/3 cup honey, 4 cinnamon sticks, 1 fifth bottle of bourbon. 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.
