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
- 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.
