Apple Brandy Hot Toddy Recipe

Apple Brandy Hot Toddy
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Makes: 1 drink

Often used as a cold remedy, a hot toddy is at once delicious and invigorating. This take on the classic receives a boost of flavor from honey liqueur and apple brandy, for a toddy that’s sure to leave everyone warm and a bit toasty.

What to buy: Bärenjäger Honey Liqueur is a German classic. A unique blend of highland honey and fine spirits, it can be found at well-stocked liquor stores or online. If you can’t find it, high-quality clover honey can be substituted. A general apple brandy can also be used in place of the Calvados, but we prefer the full-bodied flavor of Bärenjäger and Calvados.
