Meet my new favorite drink – a Maple Ginger Hot Toddy!  A cozy warm winter sipper, made with muddled ginger, maple syrup (or honey), whiskey, a squeeze of lemon and hot ginger tea. The perfect cocktail for chilly evenings fireside or when feeling under the weather.  Not only does it soothe a sore throat and help clear the sinuses,  it tucks one gently into bed for the night.

The Maple Ginger Hot Toddy is really simple to make.  Set a kettle of water to boil on the stove.   Add a few slices of fresh ginger to a mug and gently muddle. Add a satchel of tea- here I’m using Celestial Seasonings Ginger Spice– and any whole spices you like, star anise, clove, or cinnamon.

Pour hot water over, add a shot of whiskey ( or bourbon or scotch), stir in a little maple syrup and finish with squeeze of lemon. Meyer lemons are particularly good here.  You can leave in the tea bag for extra flavor or take it out–a healing soothing elixir for a sore throat, or  a nice way to warm up after being out in the snow and cold.

  1. I couldn’t find gingerbread tea, but this recipe was still awesome. Yum! So delicious! We featured it on our recent Facebook Live event for Smoky Lake Maple. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am under the weather today so I made a toddy. I substituted Celestial Seasoning Apple Cinnamon tea and cloves, as that was available. Darn tasty. I’m hoping half a Netflix show and a nap will set me on the road to recovery. Thank you.

  3. I LOVE the combination of ginger and maple! Believe it or not, I’m actually sitting here eating some maple oats spiked with a little ginger, and it’s fantastic! I’d love to have it in drink form 🙂
