Christmas Cocktail

I think it’s really important to have the perfect drink for every occasion. I have tons of margarita, sangria, and other cocktail recipes here, but those aren’t quite right for the holidays. You have to have something warm and festive this time of year. Something sweet but not overbearing.

This Caramel Apple Hot Toddy is the PERFECT Christmas cocktail recipe because that’s exactly what it is: warm and comforting, and filled with the flavors of the season. SO yummy!

How to Make a Hot Toddy Cocktail

This hot toddy cocktails very simple to make. All you have to do is combine your ingredients in a pot and heat it up on the stove until warmed through. I love how the cinnamon and apple scents waft through the house and make it smell like Christmas!

How to Make Caramel Apple Hot Toddy:

  1. Combine apple cider, vodka, bourbon, and cinnamon sticks in a pot
  2. Heat on the stove top and let it simmer until hot
  3. Pour into heat-proof mugs or glasses and top with whipped cream!

We used cool whip to top it off, but real whipped cream would be just as good (if not better). I prefer this drink served hot, but it would also be good served chilled, or even frozen into a slush! This recipe makes about 12 glasses, but you can easily double the recipe if you have guests over, or if you are throwing a holiday party.

Thank you so much for this!! I hate rum and was hoping to find a cider-type drink made with vodka/other alcohols instead - so this is perfect! Looks so good!
Terry
Sounds wonderful for cold winter night! However, since I live alone, could this be kept in the fridge and reheated in the microwave for single servings?
    Becky Hardin
    I haven't made it that way, but I'm quite sure it could. I would say it would keep for about 5-7 days in an airtight container. Hope you love it!
