Recipe: Cranberry Apple Tea Toddy
Makes 4 servings
Generous 2 to 3 cups Apple Cider
Tea sachet made by cutting a piece of cheesecloth to an 8” x 8” square, placing 1 tablespoon of cranberry- or apple-based loose tea* in the center and securing with kitchen twine
¼ to ½ cup Amaretto liqueur
Optional for infused whipped cream garnish: 1 cup heavy cream infused with 1 tablespoon tea leaves, heated until just warm. Let steep until well infused. Chill and whip or place in a whipped cream canister.
Place apple cider in a large microwave-safe bowl and heat until just boiling. Remove and add tea sachet. Allow to steep about 5 to 10 minutes until well infused with tea flavor. Ladle infused cider into hot mugs and add about 1 to 2 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur to each much. Finish with a dollop of infused whipped cream. Serve hot.
*For this recipe I chose The Spice and Tea Exchange Cranberry Apple Tart Tea because it’s all natural made with cranberries, apples and hibiscus leaves. A 4-ounce package makes a pitcher of sangria, 8 toddys, with enough left over for you to enjoy in a cup or two.
