When planning a last minute holiday party this past week I found myself scouring the internet for an easy Hot Toddy recipe, with the emphasis on “easy.”  I came across several requiring tons of ingredients, and some requiring eggnog …Yuck!  I eventually found a few festive and easy Hot Toddy recipes requiring sangria,  I tweaked them and came up with this gem of a recipe.  It requires only 5 ingredients and about 5 minutes of preparation time.

The Sangria Hot Toddy was so delish my guests and I managed to polish off an entire jumbo size crock pot of this festive drink.  Happy Holidays everyone, and enjoy this most delicious, festive, and easy Hot Toddy recipe!

Easiest & Festive Hot Toddy Recipe

With only 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to prep this is by far the easiest and festive and most delicious Hot Toddy Recipe!  

Course Drinks


  • 2 Bottles 1.5 liter X 2 Sangria Wine Sam's Club Brand- It doesn't matter which brand you choose
  • 2 Cups Dark Spiced Rum
  • 5 Cinnamon Sticks
  • Juice of 2 Oranges
  • 1 Orange Sliced Thin
  • 1 Cup Fresh Cranberries


  1. Gather your ingredients.

    Add everything to the crock pot, set to high and bring to a simmer. Once it achieves a simmer set to warm and let sit for a few hours to pick up the cinnamon flavor.  

    The oranges were a little tart, so I added a tablespoon of Truvia after tasting to sweeten up the batch.  This step is totally optional! 

    Keep your crockpot on warm while serving to your guests, and enjoy!

Here are a couple of pics of my night, to give you a quick synopsis of how the fun evening played out.  If you are a fan of my blog you get my love of doing mostly everything “on the cheap.” From using inexpensive M&M’s for a colorful garnish, and utilizing Sam’s Club prepared food, as to not have to kill myself in the kitchen.  Holiday game night was probably one of the easiest and cutest evenings I have ever hosted!  I even pulled out the Christmas China to add a cute and colorful addition to the spread, funnily enough, that backfired when one of my guests who happens to be 6’5 asked for a “manlier” mug!
