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.

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
