Gingered Cider Hot Toddie

Does a warm Hot Toddie sound good right about now?? I know that when it gets chilly outside I like to have a warm beverage all day long. Most times it’s coffee, but sometimes I don’t want so much caffeine as it gets later in the day. So I switch to tea of some sort. I like to make a non alcoholic hot toddie to warm me up. I decided to see what sort of twist I could make on my usual tea & came up with something you will love to serve your guests this holiday season.

Making this with cider instead of water really gives it a wonderful rich flavor.

I love that I can have this at any time of day without the shot of spirits.  It’s also a great beverage to serve to guests during holiday entertaining.

Very festive & since the spirits are optional- everyone can enjoy it.

    OOOh, looks good, is this just for 2 servings? I guess it depends how big your glasses are! How many would you expect this to serve?
