Hot Toddy Apple Cider (the Spiked version)


Okay, so the weather is finally cooling down here in Southern California and we couldn't be more appreciative. Truth is for us 70 degree weather means we can actually wear long sleeves and light sweaters or cardigans. The evenings are definitely cool enough for the heavier or thicker ones if willing.

Personally I'm ready to start wearing warmer clothing and actually curl up with my doggies on the couch with a cozy blanket and a warm drink.

Personally this drink recipe I'm about to share with you is one of my favorites and I'm surprised I've never shared it here before. Truth is I don't make it as often as I'd like to during this time of year.  But this year and in this season I'm ready for it, especially because it has all of the ingredients I love about Fall minus the pumpkin.

I'm really picky about my cider. So this year I chose to pick up a bottle from Trader Joe's and it's probably my new favorite. I love apples mostly fuji or gala but any will do for this drink recipe.

I love using cinnamon any chance I get, I can't tell you how good it is for us. It's such a great antioxidant and has anti-Inflammatory properties plus lower's blood sugar levels. So all in all, you want cinnamon in your life. I always add it to my coffee in the mornings too.

And it adds such a good flavor to your hot toddy apple cider!

Hot or cold, you will love this Fall-licious drink! 

Plus the best part is eating those garnish sliced apples at the very end!

You can find the recipe to this flavorful Hot Toddy Apple Cider below. 

Whether you drink it hot or cold, it's still very tasty!
