Easy hot toddy recipe with tea


The below makes one tea toddy:

40ml or 2 measures of Dark Rum

20ml or 1 measure of Orange Liqueur,

20ml or 1 measure of Simple Syrup,

2 teaspoons of Smooth Cut Marmalade

250ml Ceylon Orange Pekoe, brewed and hot.

Ceylon Orange Pekoe

Making Your Tea

As a general rule, we recommend infusing one teaspoon of tea per cup, plus and extra one for the pot. 250ml would equal about one cup.

Use water just off the boil and infuse the tea for three minutes.
