Maple Syrup Hot Toddy


Maple Syrup Hot Toddy

Maple Hot Toddy

This delicious hot cocktail will warm your spirit and fend off the chill of any cold night. Maple syrup, applejack, sweet vermouth, and Averna (an Italian bitter) are magically combined in this tasty elixir.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 cocktail


  • 2 ounces applejack brandy
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1 ounce Averna
  • 1 teaspoon grade B maple syrup
  • 3 ounces hot water


Combine the applejack, vermouth, Averna, and maple syrup in a mug and stir until blended. Add the hot water and stir again. Garnish with the lemon peel, twisting it over the drink to release the oils.

Note: Maple syrup produced in the United States is usually labeled as grade A or grade B. Grade A syrup comes from maple trees tapped in early spring and is lighter in color and milder in flavor. This drink is best when made with darker more robustly flavored grade B syrup, which comes from trees tapped later in the season.
