Pink Lady® Apple Cider Hot Toddies for Two

2 cocktails


  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 1 whole cinnamon stick, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey (or to taste)
  • 3 ounces bourbon
  • 2 whole oranges

  1. Combine the apple cider, star anise and cinnamon stick in a small sauce pot. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes, or until the cinnamon stick opens up.

  3. Remove cider from the heat and stir in the orange juice and maple syrup.
  4. Ladle hot cider into mugs, add 1 1/2 ounces of bourbon to each mug. Garnish with orange and apple slices and serve.
  5. Store leftover cider after it has cooled in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
