Spiced Cranberry Hot Toddy


This Spiced Cranberry Hot Toddy recipe post was made in partnership with Malabar Spiced Liqueur. Recipe and ideas are my own.

Some say it’s an old wive’s tale, but I truly believe in the magic that is the Hot Toddy. Whenever I feel sickness on the horizon, I love to make a Hot Toddy at night before bed. This almost always works for me, and it doesn’t hurt that Hot Toddy’s are alcoholic. Don’t knock it ’til you try it, right?

Because I want you all to hop aboard the Hot Toddy train, I decided to make a variation on the classic! Meet the Spiced Cranberry Hot Toddy, made with whiskey and Malabar Spiced Liqueur for a seasonal take. The spices in the Malabar in addition to the cloves, orange, and cinnamon stick will make your kitchen smell incredible while you make this drink.

Feel free to dress up your Spiced Cranberry Hot Toddy as much or as little as you want! Garnish options include orang slices, star anise, cinnamon sticks, and cranberries!
