Childhood memories of apple cider with a little something extra to remind you why being an adult is OK, too.

Ingredients in the The Apple Toddy Cocktail

Boiling water
baked Macintosh apple
1 tsp
Sugar (heaping tsp)

How to make The Apple Toddy Cocktail

Fortunately, the labor-intensive part of this drink lies solely in baking the apples

Take half as many Macintosh apples as you'd like to make drinks, core them, peel them and wrap them in wet parchment paper

Bake them in a 350-degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes until completely soft

Set aside until cool

For each drink, warm a heatproof mug by rinsing it with boiling water

Put in half a baked apple and a heaping teaspoon of sugar and muddle them quickly together

Add 1 ounce of boiling water and stir

Add the applejack, cognac or bourbon and stir again

Add 1 ounce of boiling water

(The staggered addition of the water keeps the drink as hot as possible)

Grate nutmeg over the top and serve

    Ahem, you miss the creme ala creme. Add 15 year old El Dorado Rum as the booze ingredient. Umm, umm, the others drift quickly into obscurity.
