Hot Bourbon-Apple Toddy

I call this my cold medicine-

  • 10 oz apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 star anise
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon honey
  • 4 oz bourbon (or honey whiskey)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice  

In a sauce pot, combine apple cider, cinnamon, star anise, and cloves. Bring to a boil. 

Remove from heat and cover with a lid.  Allow spices to steep for 10-15 minutes.
Strain spices. Stir in honey to dissolve. 

Add whiskey and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Add more honey according to taste, if desired. Serve with sliced apples, sliced lemons, cinnamon sticks, and star anise.
