Spiced Hot Apple Toddy
about 1 cup apple juice or cider
1 slice each of an apple, orange, and lemon
1 ounce Black Velvet whiskey
1/2 ounce Butterscotch Schnapps
peeled fresh ginger, coarsely chopped (about a thumb-sized amount)
mulling spices (whole cloves, cinnamon stick, allspice, nutmeg, etc)
Add the ginger, mulling spices, fruit slices, and juice (or cider) in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
Let simmer for 5-15 minutes (or more if you want some intense flavor).
Add a small drizzle of honey into your glass, add your liquors, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Then with a ladle, scoop your drink into your glass. Add whatever garnishes from the simmering pot you would like. I enjoyed the orange slice, apple slice, and cinnamon stick.
