Friday’s Feature Cocktails – Hot Toddies

Hot Toddies don't get much more appetizing than this, folks...

Mother Nature has been teasing me for a few weeks now, but I guess we can all openly say what’s now finally here – fall has officially arrived.

Sigh…so long summer!

If there is one thing, however, that this new season brings with it (especially if you’re in New England!) is an abundance of fresh apple cider, eagerly waiting to be heated up and spiked with liquor to keep me warm and toasty.

I’m not one to deter far from adding brown spirits and a bit of mulling spices to my Apple Cider, but I have found that some of Hiram Walker’s liqueurs, too, make for wonderful additions to a spiked Toddy. So leave the sugar and honey aside and try one of these TWO (yes, that’s right, two cocktails today!) delightful and savory-sweet combinations in your next hot toddy.

Hot Cinn Apple Toddy:

  • 1 ½ parts bourbon
  • 1 ½ parts Hiram Walker Original Cinn Schnapps
  • ½ oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp agave nectar
  • Fill with hot apple cider
  • Green apple slice dipped in hot caramel or cinnamon stick for garnish

Pour the bourbon, schnapps, and lemon juice into an Irish coffee glass or mug. Stir well. Fill with hot apple cider. Garnish with the green apple or a cinnamon stick.

Hot Apple Toddy:

  • 1 part Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • 1 part Hiram Walker Caramel Apple Liqueur
  • Fill with hot apple cider

Build in a warm Irish coffee glass or mug. Stir well.


Cheers!
