Ingredients

  • 2 ounces brandy, rum, or rye
  • 1 ounce honey
  • 1/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 ounce plain or mulled cider
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 slice of orange studded with cloves, for garnish

Who isn't intrigued by the idea of a toasty Hot Toddy on a chilly winter night? Ordered one in a bar, but never prepared one at home? Here is a simple recipe for the hot drink virgins among us.

Directions

A little planning goes a long way — his recipe is for two. Our recommendation, though, is to make a larger batch of the non-alcoholic ingredients in advance to keep on hand.

Infuse the cider, lemon juice, and honey mixture with the cinnamon stick and cloves a day or two ahead. It's simple: Bring the liquid to a boil with the spices, let cool and refrigerate until ready to use.

Right before serving, re-heat your spiced infusion then add the alcohol (off the stove) and garnish with a squeeze of orange juice and the slice of clove-studded orange slice.
