I’ve had a bit of a cold this week, but I have too much to do to let it slow me down! Ain’t nobody got time to be sick the week before Christmas. To help ignore my sore throat, I enjoyed one of these apple hot toddies, which is very simple to make. You don’t need to be under the weather to sip on this warm cocktail. Why not get cozy with your sweet, spiked tea while you read, work on a puzzle, or watch a Christmas movie?

bourbon cocktails always win in my book! Looks like I’ll need to find some apple liqueur though. Suppose I could sub in my crabapple hooch? Thinking I’ll try :-)

Yes for sure use the crabapple hooch! I think you can get pretty creative with hot toddies and still have them taste pretty good. Let me know how it turns out!
