Chances are if you grew up around a grandparent and you had a little cold they wanted to give you a hot toddy. The old myth about this hot beverage curing a cold was the the whiskey or bourbon would help with your cough , the honey would sooth your throat and the lemon or orange in this case provided the vitamin C needed to get better . Well , we all know now a cold is a virus that just has to run it’s course but this Crown Apple Hot Toddy is amazing. Sniffle or no sniffle you need this in your life during the colder months.
Toddy’s are super easy to make. I chose an cinnamon apple spiced herbal tea because it paired well with the apple crown but feel free to use your favorite tea. Basically steep a cup of tea like you normally would then add honey to your taste and apple crown to your taste. Apple crown has a more pleasant flavor than a regular whiskey so I really enjoyed this toddy .
I decided to use an orange instead of the traditional lemon and it was a really nice touch. This is a soothing beverage when you have a little sniffle but it can be enjoyed on a cold evening to warm you up or night cap. If you want something to warm you up on a cold night but don’t want a crown apple hot toddy give my Peppermint Mocha Mix a try.
