home sick & new toddy recipe....

 (this is my fake sick face, but i really am home sick.)

going to try this recipe tonight:

Hot Apple-Ginger Toddy
makes one drink
a cup or so of apple cider
1 to 2 ounces of applejack
a drizzle of honey
a squeeze of lemon
peeled fresh ginger root, coarsely chopped
mulling spices (cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, allspice, nutmeg - whatever you have on hand)
Optional garnishes: cinnamon stick stirrer, lemon slice, apple slice, ginger slice
Add the ginger and mulling spices to the cider and simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat for at least 5 minutes (or a full 15 or more if you want full flavor). Drizzle some honey into a mug and add the liquor, hot cider, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Stir.
