Hot Apple-Ginger Toddy

a cup or so of apple cider
1 to 2 ounces of dark liquor (I used applejack, but bourbon or dark rum would work well too)
a drizzle of honey
a squeeze of lemon
peeled fresh gingerroot, coarsely chopped (I used a thumb-sized piece)
mulling spices (cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, allspice, nutmeg – whatever you have on hand)
Optional garnishes: cinnamon stick stirrer, lemon slice, apple slice, ginger slice

Add the ginger and mulling spices to the cider and simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat for at least 5 minutes (or a full 15 or more if you want full flavor). Drizzle some honey into a mug and add the liquor, hot cider, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Stir.
