Hot Toddy Recipe


If you’re like me, you dislike cold weather so much that as soon as it gets below 50 degrees, you literally start freaking out. Depression, blues, cold/flu, and dry skin are a few things that happen to me. So, here is a nice hot beverage to soothe some of those feelings and issues. There are many variations of this drink, but the recipe I’ve posted here is my favorite (mainly because I’m loving whiskey right now. Who knew?). Feeling a cold coming on? MAKE THIS! And drink every last drop. Guaranteed you will feel better. No more sore throat, and for me, lemon is a very relaxing scent. So here we go… how to make a Hot Toddy…

What you will need:

Coffee mug
Green Tea of your choice
1 cup of water
1 1/2 – 2 ounces of whiskey of your choice (the one pictured above is super delicious and I highly recommend)
Lemon wedge
1 tablespoon of honey

To make:

Place water in coffee mug and microwave until boiling. Then, put in all your ingredients; tea bag, whiskey, honey and squeeze in the lemon juice. Stir. Sip. And enjoy!

Funny side note: We did not have any lemons when I made this just now, so I used a couple drops of pure lemon extract. Still delicious!

I thought I would do something different and easy today. It’s Monday and we all could use a little pick me up, right? This drink is so good and perfect for the summer months. The following recipe is for a single serving, so go ahead! Drink up 😉

What you will need:

1/2 cup lemonade
1/2 cup iced tea
2 oz. vodka (I prefer either Grey Goose or Belvedere)
Ice, crushed or cubed
1 clear glass

Place ice in glass. Cubed works best but I personally like crushed better. Pour in lemonade and vodka, mix. Slowly pour in the tea, it should rest on top of the lemonade. Serve with a lemon wedge and mint leaf. Cheers!
