I was working on some new additions to the winter cocktail list at work and realized that I hadn’t seen any gin toddies. This seemed like a good challenge. The based is an infused dry gin: into each fifth of gin add three bags of Numi Orange Spice tea (a white tea with orange peel, lemongrass, and schisandra berries) and let sit for ~20-24 hours until a rich orange color has been attained.
- 1.5 Orange Spiced Gin
- .75 Cointreau
- .5 Orgeat syrup
- hot water
- twist of orange
Combine all of the liquids in a heated footed mug, twist orange over top and drop in. This is a warming spiced drink that is strong on the citrus but mellowed with the almond. If you want to you can add a dash or two of some Peychaud’s or a few cloves to make it feel a little more seasonal.
