Calvados Hot Toddy

MAKES 1 COCKTAIL

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon, plus more for garnish
  • 6 oz. apple cider, plus more for rimming glass
  • 1½ oz. fine calvados
  • 4 oz. heavy cream
  • 1 cinnamon stick, for garnish

Instructions

Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl wide enough to fit the rim of a double-walled glass. Pour apple cider into a bowl of similar size to about ¼-inch depth. Dip the rim of the glass in apple cider and then cinnamon-sugar mixture. Whip cream and ½ oz. calvados until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until ready to use. Heat 6 oz. apple cider in a 2-qt. saucepan. Add remaining calvados. Pour into glass and top with whipped cream. Garnish with ground cinnamon and cinnamon stick.
While this is certainly not the traditional Hot Toddy, this is a nice variation one can try in the beginning stages of experimenting with the cocktail. Calvados is French apply brandy. I’m thinking this would make the perfect autumn/winter drink for the temperatures outside right now!
