What Is A Hot Toddy?
A drink made from hot water, honey (or sugar), lemon, and whiskey, the hot toddy originated in the 18th century as a medicinal aid. Liquor to numb pain, and citrus and honey to soothe a sore throat.
In our version, the hot water is combined with matcha, and the citrus element is replaced with sweet apple cider.
What Kind Of Matcha Should I Use?
We used our Teahouse Edition Ceremonial Matcha in this recipe. We love its smooth flavor profile and how the sweet notes of the matcha come through in the cocktail.
- You may substitute the brown sugar with honey, or any alternative sweetener you like.
- Try the iced version- instead of steaming the apple cider, keep it chilled and serve this drink over ice.
- You may substitute regular whiskey for the apple flavored whiskey
- Omit whiskey for a fun kid-friendly mocktail!
