Aloe Toddy

Ale Toddy hot cocktail with green tea, aloe liqueur, honey, and lemon juice

The Aloe Toddy is a recipe from the Chareau company, makers of the most recognizable brand of aloe liqueur. We didn’t really know what we were in for this one; “hot aloe” is not a flavor profile we could easily simulate in our minds.

The original recipe from Chareau called for either green or peppermint tea, and we tried it both ways. The mint tea version was all wrong: the collision between the two main flavors lent almost a burnt, muddy note that did no justice to either ingredient.

Then we tried the green tea version, and epiphany struck! With green tea, the drink is a lovely thing – fragrant, sweet, almost candy-like without being cloying.

Ingredients

Instructions

Brew up a mugful of green tea, leaving a bit of space in the cup for the remaining ingredients. Add the aloe liqueur, honey, and lemon juice, and stir gently to combine. Garnish with a bouquet of fresh mint and a lemon wedge.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
