Maple Syrup Toddy Recipe
Perhaps the earliest form of a cocktail, toddies were created as a way to chase away the chill and offer relief from colds and flu. A couple hundred years later, we're still drinking them for the same reasons, though bartenders like John Ginnetti are upping the ante with premium spirits and creative combinations, making drinks you definitely want to sip while you're hale and hearty. For this New England-inspired version, the owner of 116 Crown in Connecticut reaches for Laird's applejack, which has been made in nearby New Jersey since the 1700's. Then he sweetens the mix with pure maple syrup, one of the state's biggest crops. Instead of adding traditional spices, he uses sweet vermouth and Averna, an Italian amaro, to give the drink aromatic complexity.

For most cocktails, this  thinned honey syrup is preferable to honey itself, which is too viscous. You can add other flavors to the syrup while you heat it: lavender, rosemary, and jalapeño are all great additions.

On a hot afternoon, pass on the soda or sugary flavored teas and pour a cold glass of sparkling water with mint infused white wine syrup. The recipe is ridiculously simple and makes for a refreshing twist to an aperitivo, cocktail or perfect for macerating fruit. Mint grows like weeds in our garden, popping up everywhere and spreading its long roots across the herb patch invading in on the chive and dill so I'm always looking for ways to use it!
