Warm Winter Nights

Fight off the cold weather with a toddy version of a familiar drink.

THE MARGARITA GETS a winter makeover for a chilly party night, with hot cider and cranberry juice joining the usual suspects in a festive warming drink. Part toddy, part cocktail, and all good. The key to this beverage’s success is to use a decent tequila, but you already knew that.

Cranberry Tequila Toddy



  • 4 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ½ cup gold tequila
  • ¼ cup Cointreau
  • Lime wedges
  • Dried cranberries
  • Orange slices
  • 6 cinnamon sticks

To Prepare

  1. Heat the cider, cranberry juice and orange juice in a saucepan until very hot, but not boiling.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the tequila and Cointreau.
  3. Serve warm with a squeeze of lime.
  4. Garnish with dried cranberries (for extra zing, pre-soak the dried cranberries in Cointreau for at least 30 minutes), orange slices and a cinnamon stick for stirring.
