About This Drink
The Hot Apple Toddy comes from Albert Stevens Crockett’s, The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book which was first published in 1934. As the baked apple disintegrates and mixes with the applejack, it explodes with apple flavor and aroma.
In a large pot, add 2 parts Demerara or Turbinado sugar to 1 part hot water. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the liquid has clarified. Remove from heat, let cool, store in a sealable container, and refrigerate until use.
