Earl Grey Hot Toddy

Not only is a hot toddy a medicinal concoction, but it’s also a tasty way to relax and unwind on a chilly evening. This hot toddy recipe incorporates Earl Grey black tea and apple cider for a slightly citrusy, fruit-forward take on a traditional toddy. Spike it with a splash of spirits for the classic drink, or enjoy it on its own.
