Hot toddies and winter are hand in wooly glove, this we know. The Lady Apple proves the adage that good things come in small packages. These lovely Ladies are small but intense, crisp and juicy, with hints of citrus, sometimes likened to the flavor of dried fruit. The Lady is a late-season apple and because of its size, festive coloring, and ability to withstand a freeze, Lady is often featured in Christmas wreaths, hence also known as Christmas Apple.
BooYah! specially selected this little gal in making our Lady Apple Toddy Shrub, spicing her disposition with cinnamon and nutmeg and sweetening her with brown sugar.
Added to hot tea provides a warm cheeriness, but if you’re looking for something on the stronger side, 1-2 ounces of this shrub can be combined with 2 ounces of apple brandy and a small pad of unsalted butter, a small amount of water and heated.
