We were feeling a little chilli today and so we opted for a hot drink this Friday. We infused apple juice with spices for more flavour and an added kick.


You need:

Hot toddy spicesThis recipe serves 2

1 cinnamon stick

3 green cardamom pods

1 star anise

300ml apple juice

2 shots of vodka


Pour the apple juice into a pan, add the spices and slowly bring to boil

Take off the heat and leave to infuse for at least 2 hours

Strain the apple juice and bring to a gentle simmer

Pour the vodka into a cognac glass (any glass will do) and pour the warm juice over and enjoy
