A cocktail for those chilly nights that will warm you from the inside out, complete with warm apple cider and oak-aged vodka.

Fall is definitely in full swing here in Boston- the crisp, fresh air, colorful foliage along the Charles, and leaves that have fallen  crunching under your riding boots. With the air getting cooler, most of us are reaching for hot coffee or tea as opposed to our summer favorites of iced coffee or tea. Why not do the same with our cocktails and reach for something warm instead? An apple cider hot toddy is the perfect cocktail for cozy fall nights!

I made my hot toddy with the new Oak by Absolut that was released by Absolut earlier this fall. By resting the vodka in barrels made of Swedish, French and American oak, Oak by Absolut brings a whole new depth and smoky dimension to vodka. Beyond the subtle smoky flavor, oak rested vodka also has hints of vanilla and caramel flavors making it perfect for fall cocktails. Oak by Absolut opens up a whole new world of vodka cocktails, including ones that previously were reserved for bolder alcohols like whiskey which is traditionally used in a hot toddy. Give Oak by Absolut a try for yourself- it’s now available at retailers in the Boston area! Hot toddies all around 🙂

    I keep seeing this around and am so curious about it. I am more of a whiskey drinker so would probably like the flavors in this.

      Meghan, I think you’d like it! I am not a whiskey drinker… so it’s a bit milder than that which is good for me. My hubby loves whiskey and bourbon and I think he was just wishing I used the real deal, but it was fun to experiment!
