We love our Winter Hot Toddies. They’re the perfect drink when you feel the “ick” coming on.

  • 1 piece Orange Wedge

  • 1 piece Cinnamon Stick

  • 1-2 tsp 1-2 tsp Elderberry Syrup  Preferably locally made rather than bulk manufactured (We carry Jodi's Elderberry Syrup)

Everyone is a little different in their taste for liquor.  If 1 oz is too much it’s ok to cut it back.  If it’s not enough….well then add to your heart’s content.  🙂

If you need it to be a little sweeter, add a little honey or a little more elderberry syrup.
