HOT 'Spirited Apple' GINGER TODDY RECIPE
Here's a perfect finishing touch to a cold, winter day...a hot toddy with warming ginger and Finnriver's Spirited Apple Wine. There are many recipes out there for a hot toddy, but here's one we've adapted from Serious Eats:
In a medium saucepan, add water, ginger root slices and optional cloves. Squeeze lemon juice into the saucepan, adding lemon halves into the liquid. Bring to a boil over high heat, and then reduce to medium heat, so the liquid is bubbling. Cook for 10 minutes, until the mixture has reduced and has enough of a gingery taste to your liking. Strain, removing cloves, lemon halves and ginger from the liquid. Pour into two mugs. Add enough honey and Spirited Apple Wine to your tastes. Garnish with lemon slices, a sprinkle of cinnamon if you like, and serve. Relish the warmth!
