Cider and Tequila Hot Toddy

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
So I’m thinking apples, New Mexico, Tequila, New Mexico, Cinnamon Sticks, New Mexico... I think we better make one now! This serves six.

4 cups apple cider
1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
1/2-cup tequila
1/4 cup triple sec or other orange-flavored liqueur
Lime slice, for garnish

In a saucepan, heat cider and cranberry juice cocktail just until hot (do not let boil) and remove from heat. Stir in tequila and liqueur. Serve toddies in mugs, garnished with lime slices. Note: To spice up a little: add cinnamon sticks, a little cloves, allspice and nutmeg. You can also garnish with orange slices.
