Holly’s Hotty Toddy


  1. 1 Packet Alpine Hot Cider and Water
  2. 1.7 ounces (50ml) of 100% Agave Tequila
  3. 1 Teaspoon Local Honey
  4. 3 Dashes of Ground Cinnamon
  5. 2 Dashes of Ground Clove
  6. 1 Dash of Ground Ginger

Heat up 8 ounces of water—either boiled or micro-waved for two minutes. Stir in and dissolve the Cider Packet and Honey. Add in the tequila. Add in the Cinnamon, Clove, and Ginger. Stir until mixed in. Sip, enjoy, and repeat.

To fancy up the Toddy for you or guests – add whipped cream on top, or make in large batches in a pitcher, and float apple slices (red delicious) in it for a treat at the end!

Happy Hollydays!

Honey Syrup keeps honey from freezing and seizing when mixed in cocktails. Just mix 3/4 cup honey with 1/4 cup hot water over low heat and stir to combine. Keep refrigerated. Will last about three months.
