Hot Ginger Toddy

Apres ski drankin’ continued…you cannot go wrong with a Hot Toddy; they are delicious.  However, I love the idea of incorporating fresh ginger to the mix. -ts

a cup or so of apple cider
1 to 2 ounces of dark liquor (bourbon, whiskey or dark rum)
a drizzle of honey a squeeze of lemon
peeled fresh gingerroot, coarsely chopped- thumb size piece will work  mulling spices (cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, allspice, nutmeg – whatever you have on hand)

  1. Add the ginger and mulling spices to the cider and simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat for at least 5 minutes (or a full 15 or more if you want full flavor).
  2. Drizzle some honey into a mug and add the liquor, hot cider, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Stir. Optional garnishes: cinnamon stick stirrer, lemon slice
