It’s been cold this month. I spent all day outdoors yesterday volunteering for Agriculture in the Classroom’s Amazing Ag Adventure. I needed something to warm me up in the evening so I kicked up my tea a bit. I made myself a Hot Toddy, a tea made with a few extra things including a tiny bit of alcohol. Traditionally it was meant to cure colds and flus and drank before bed. It was just what I needed and slept like a baby!
You too can sleep like a baby. You’ll need:
- 1 oz brandy whiskey or rum. (I used brandy)
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1/4 lemon
- 1 cup hot water
- 1 tea bag
- Coat the bottom of a mug with honey.
- Add the liquor and the juice of the lemon quarter.
- Heat water, add tea.
- Pour tea into the glass and stir together.
