Servings 1 cup


  • Pot
  • Jar
  • Cup


  • 2-3 tbsp Apple Caramel Sauce Recipe above
  • 2 dl Apple Cider (or apple juice)
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 dl Alcohol (rum, whiskey, etc)


  • To a cup or heat proof glas add the homemade apple caramel sauce.
  • Set a small sauce pan on the stove.
  • Add the apple cider, lemon juice and cinnamon stick to the pan.
  • On medium heat let the mixture cook for a while till it is nice and warm and the cinnamon had time to infuse its flavor into the apple cider.
  • Turn off the heat and add your preferred spirit to the apple cider mixture.
  • Pour the hot toddy over the caramel apple sauce.
  • Stir everything well. You can use the cinnamon stick to stir or simply get the spoon. Leave the cinnamon stick in the drink to let it infuse even longer. Enjoy!


Can I use the syrup instantly?
Yes, you absolutely can use the sauce immediately and do not have to let it cool down. Just be careful to not burn your hands as it will be very hot.
Can I make a big batch?
Yes! Making a bigger batch of this hot toddy is absolutely no problem! Usually, 1 cinnamon stick is enough even if you double or triple the recipe. If you make more, I recommend adding an additional cinnamon stick.
Making bigger batches will be perfect if you have guests over or the whole family wants to sip on some warm hot toddies. You can keep it warm on the stove. That way the flavors will intensify too as it soaks longer.
