Today is Hot Toddy Day!

Today is Hot Toddy Day! I have a friend who recently told me that the only thing that finally kicked a cold that would not go away was to enjoy a stiff hot toddy before bed. She swore she woke up the next morning feeling better! When you look at the elements of a hot toddy like hot tea, whiskey (or other alcohol), honey and lemon...seems like a sure bet to kill any cold or flu bug that is ailing you!

Here is a simple hot toddy recipe from

Hot Toddy

1 oz brandy, whiskey or rum
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 lemon
1 cup hot water
1 tea bag

Coat the bottom of a mug or an Irish coffee glass with honey.
Add the liquor and the juice of the lemon quarter.
On the side, heat water in a tea kettle and add the tea bag to make hot tea.
Pour the steaming tea into the glass and stir.

Of course, as with all things, urges moderation and selecting a designated driver should you decide to have a hot toddy out on the town!
