What’s better than a hot toddy to keep you warm on those cold winter nights?
You will need:

This classically inspired cocktail can be great in both the winter and the summer. You will need:
Coat the rim of a highball glass with sugar and fill with ice. Pour in 2 1/2 ounces of Santa Fe Spirits Apple Brandy and then fill to the top with the fresh lime margarita mix. Garnish with a lime and enjoy.
This drink takes its inspiration from a dark and stormy and has the awesome combination of the heat of the brandy and the spice of the ginger beer.
