Take some of the chill out of winter with this restorative warm Amaretto cocktail recipe from RACV Healesville Country Club & Resort.

You need not forgo cocktails just because the mercury has dropped. Like hearty meals, hot chocolate and snow, warm cocktails are some of the best things to enjoy during winter in Victoria.  

This Warm Amaretto recipe from RACV Healesville Country Club & Resort is similar to a Hot Toddy, but packs extra flavour thanks to swapping out hot water for tea and switching out the whisky for Amaretto (a sweet, almond-flavoured liqueur from Italy).  

If you’re looking for more ways to stay warm, try this crowd-pleasing mulled wine recipe (you can even make a non-alcoholic version).
