What liquor goes best with hot apple cider?
For your hot toddy you will find that bourbon, whiskey, or rum work best for a more traditional flavor. Whiskey will help to bring more warmth to the drink while rum makes it taste a little sweeter. Not only that but you can also use a cinnamon spiced whiskey or Fireball to give the drink a warm kick of spice.
