With its cold crisp air and fuzzy sweaters, Winter can be an absolutely magical season. Sometimes, though, Winter can be a real bitch. Between getting sick with the world’s never ending cold/sinus infection and Houston’s freakish winter weather, Winter and I are currently not getting along. Its times like these that call for the ultimate winter (and illness) cure-all: The Hot Toddy.
Hot Toddy Recipe, makes one drink
- 1 mug of piping hot tea
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 shot of Bourbon
- 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Measuring spoon or shot glass
- A mug
- A Spoon
- Optional: Ridiculous fluffy creature to snuggle (my snuggle monster of choice?Frankie, my dog. Besides a penchant for eating socks, she is also a living Muppet)
Place all the ingredients in your mug, mix them with your spoon, and drink. Curl up with your favorite blanket/ dog and let the liquid sunshine warm your body and your soul.
