Alpine Toddy

Alpine Toddy cocktail with yellow Chartreuse, chamomile tea, orange bitters, and lemon juice

We’ve always taken to Hot Toddies as a cure for mid-winter sniffles and sore throats, but the Alpine Toddy may be our new go-to! It’s a luxurious, comforting take on sipping chamomile tea and sucking on a honey-lemon throat lozenge (preferably while wrapped up in a blanket burrito, propped up in front of Netflix).

The recipe calls for yellow Chartreuse, the sweetest yellow herbal liqueur. You could sub for another brand if that’s what you have, but you may wish to add a little bit of honey or other sweetener.

Ingredients

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a small heat-proof mug or cup. Top with boiling water and let steep for 4-5 minutes. Discard the tea bag, and garnish with a clove-studded lemon wheel.

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.
