Hot Apple Toddy

We bought a giant bag of candy from Costco last week anticipating a lot of trick-or-treaters.  Sure we probably ate half of it before Halloween actually rolled around, but we still had plenty.

Not only did we not get a single trick-or-treater, I didn't even see one child out in costume.  I saw three college age dudes dressed as presidents and zombies, but no kids.

So now we have no choice but to gorge ourselves on pounds of snickers and peanut butter cups.  We can't let it go bad!  Since it's fall and I'm going to need something to wash it all down with anyway, I might as well do it with this hot toddy.  You know, get in the spirit!

8 oz. apple cider (not juice - get the real stuff)
1 1/2 oz. bourbon
1 cinnamon stick

1.  Add apple cider and cinnamon stick to a small saucepan.  Bring just to a simmer over medium-low heat.  Remove from heat.

2.  Add bourbon to glass and pour cider over the top (with or without the cinnamon stick).
