Warm up with a hot bourbon cocktail that includes the sweet taste of cinnamon. The hot cinn apple toddy is one of the many hot toddies that you can enjoy on chilly nights and it's incredibly easy to mix up.

This recipe starts with an hot apple toddy base, a brew of steaming apple cider spiked with whiskey. Bourbon is the whiskey of choice here and the drink is sweetened with a hint of agave nectar. The key ingredient is the cinnamon schnapps, which gives the drink a deliciously sweet, warm spice. It's a wonderfully comforting cocktail and a perfect way to relax on a cold autumn or winter night.


  • 8 ounces apple cider

  • 1 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey

  • 1 1/2 ounces cinnamon schnapps

  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar

  • Apple slice, or cinnamon stick; for garnish

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Warm up the apple cider on the stove or in the microwave.

  3. Pour the bourbon, schnapps, and lemon juice into an Irish coffee glass or mug.

  4. Stir well.

  5. Fill with hot apple cider.

  6. Garnish with an apple slice or cinnamon stick, or both. Serve and enjoy.


  • Adjust the lemon juice and agave nectar to suit your taste. For some whiskey and schnapps combinations, you may need just a splash of lemon juice or a squeeze of nectar.
  • While bourbon is recommended, any style of whiskey will work in this toddy. If you prefer the smooth blends of a Canadian whisky or an Irish whiskey, pour one of those. To give the drink a nice spice, try rye whiskey instead.
  • For the apple garnish, dip slices into a little lemon juice right after cutting to prevent them from turning brown due to oxidation. You can either cut a small slit in the slice in order to rest it on the rim of your mug or simply let it float on top of the drink.
