The Sweeter Toddy

Here’s an alternative version of the hot toddy that is much sweeter (and soothing on a sore throat) that is made with apple juice instead of black tea.

What you’ll need:

  • Apple juice
  • Honey
  • Whisky
  • Brown sugar
  • Star anise pods 

In a small saucepan, simmer 1 cup of apple juice over medium-low heat until small bubbles appear on the bottom but do not bring to a boil.  While the apple juice is simmering, coat the bottom of a heatproof mug with about 1 tablespoon of honey.  Add a pinch of brown sugar to the heating apple juice and stir in until it dissolves.  Remove the apple juice from the heat and pour carefully into the mug.  Add in 1 oz of whisky and stir.  Garnish with one star anise pod.
