Be Toasty with Joffrey’s Toddy à l’Orange

As National Tea Month comes to a close, let’s try a new twist on the classic toddy! This citrusy version is made with Grand Marnier.

Toddy à l’Orange (makes one cocktail)

  • 1 oz. Grand Marnier
  • ¼ lemon
  • 6 oz. of near boiling water
  • Joffrey’s Orange Spice tea in an infuser or tea sac
  • Honey if desired
  • Orange slice for garnish, if desired

If you typically enjoy your tea a bit sweeter, coat the bottom of your mug with honey. Add the Grand Marnier and juice of the lemon. Separately, heat the water in a tea kettle or on the stove to near boiling. Add the tea infuser or tea sac and let steep to your taste. We like to use 1-2 teaspoons of tea for every 6 oz. of water. Most black teas, like Orange Spice, typically need to steep for 2-3 minutes. If you enjoy stronger tea, use more tea rather than steeping longer.

Once tea has steeped, pour into your favorite Tervis mug and stir. For a bit more orange flavor, add a thin slice of orange to float on the top and enjoy responsibly!
