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.
- 1 part Yellow herbal liqueur
- 2 dashes Orange bitters
- ½ part Lemon juice
- 1 bag Chamomile tea
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.
