This maple ginger hot toddy is a healthy take on the classic cozy cocktail. Garnish with fresh thyme for a warming savory touch.
1cupsteeped ginger tea
2tablespoonsfresh lemon juice
2teaspoonsmaple syrup or honey
for garnish: orange or apple slices, pomegranates, fresh thyme
Pour the tea, whisky, lemon juice, and maple syrup in to a liquid measuring glass, stir, and pour into 2 serving mugs or glasses. Adjust sweetener to taste. Garnish with orange or apple slices, pomegranates, and fresh thyme.
Use these ratios as a guide - if you like your cocktail less boozy add more tea, if you like it brighter, add more lemon, if it's too strong/tart, sweeten it with a little extra maple syrup. I like Traditional Medicinals tea ginger tea in this recipe.
