Everybody loves to have one, but nobody really seems to know how to make one.
What are we talking about?
Hot Toddies, of course! And, since today is National Hot Toddy Day, we thought we'd share a hot toddy recipe that you can enjoy on these cold winter nights until summer returns.
Whether you use a hot toddy for colds (as a natural remedy), or just like to enjoy one by the fire at the end of a long day, we're sure you're going to LOVE this recipe from Chef Cody Hickman that will warm you inside and out, and is as American as... well, Apple Pie. :)
Everything you need is below, so gather your ingredients and head on over to our YouTube Channel to follow along with the Chef!
Apple Pie Hot Toddy
1.5 oz Brandy
8 oz Water
2 Tbsp Honey
1 Pinch Anise
1 oz Apple Cider
1 Lemon Wedge
2 Cinnamon Sticks
1 Pinch Nutmeg
Stir together the brandy (or rum) and hot water in a mug.

Stir the honey into the mixture with your cinnamon sticks, and finish off with a quick squeeze of lemon.
