Fall Cocktail: Hot Tea & Apple Toddy

Fall Cocktail - Hot Tea and Apple Toddy

While the sun is still shining here in LA, there has been a distinct chill in the air in the evenings which has got me pulling out my chunky sweaters, wool caps and cozy fall recipes. Among them is this Hot Tea and Apple Toddy which warms the soul with a kick of bourbon and a twist of apple and lemon. It’s the perfect sidekick to a chill night in with great friends, board games and a roaring fireplace. Enjoy the weekend!

– Squeeze in juice of half the lemon

– Stir and garnish with lemon slices and sip in a cozy spot!

Recipe above makes one cocktail. Not a drinker? Get the same soothing flavor by simply skipping the bourbon.
