The Apple Cider Hot Toddy is the perfect fall cocktail to sip on chilly evenings as you warm by the fire or serve as a Thanksgiving after dinner drink.

Okay, so I’m just gonna go ahead and say it… I don’t really like Bourbon! I know, I know it’s like water down here in the South and I’m a legit born and raised Southerner. I’ve just never acquired the taste and really, honestly, I’ve tried. Even Bourbon cocktails I find, shall I say, unsatisfactory. However, that is until I created this little toddy.

There is only the slightest hint of a Bourbon taste in this sweet fall drink, which is just perfect for sipping on chilly (or balmy should you live in Charleston) fall evenings. The mixture is even versatile in that you can add more alcohol should your taste buds enjoy the flavor, but I’m completely satisfied with the amount for which the recipe calls.

I have daydreams about curling up in comfy pjs and reading a good book while sipping this cocktail in the coming colder months, but this would also require having the energy to stay up more than 5 minutes after my kids have gone to sleep. Eh, we all have dreams right… One day! I guess I didn’t give up on finding a way to enjoy bourbon (without it being in a dessert) so I shouldn’t give up on finding some more energy… That’s a different post though.

Okay, now you should go and get the ingredients to make this drink because I have a feeling you’re gonna thank me when you do (completely confident here). Hopefully, you’ll have the energy to curl up and enjoy it while reading a book too! Oh the life!

      Oh, agreed! You’ve just inspired me to start the whole series over again!! I actually listen to the soundtrack while working on my site ๐Ÿ˜‰

    YUM! Bourbon is definitely an acquired taste; it took me awhile to learn to like it. My husband is a bourbon lover; I will definitely make these for him ๐Ÿ™‚

      Right?!? It totally is an acquired taste! I promise you can barely taste it in this fall concoction.

    I’m not a huge bourbon fan either, but I do enjoy the occasional bourbon cocktail. This one sounds perfect for fall, despite our super warm fall so far!

      I was surprised how subtle the bourbon flavor was in this mixture. Obviously you could add more but as a new bourbon drinker (read: only on cocktail form ๐Ÿ˜‰) this was the perfect ratio for me!
