Hot Toddy

Winter is still in full force here in Northern Indiana and the only good thing about winter is…well, nothing. I do love the first snowfall though; it gets me excited about everything the season brings except the fact that the season lasts 5-6 months.

If you’re lucky enough and don’t have to deal with harsh winters but still need a little pick-me-up, to take the edge off, to warm up,  and occasionally de-sniffle try this Hot Toddy. The recipe is more than simple.

I borrowed this from a friend- it describes our winters so well and I can’t help but chuckle.

 

Ingredients:
Serves 2 (1/2 cup each)

1/2 cup spiced Rum or Bourbon
1/2 cup Water
2 tablespoons Honey
2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
small paring of Lemon Zest
2 whole Cloves

 

Directions:

In a small pot, heat all ingredients over medium-high heat until hot. Do not boil. Remove the cloves and lemon zest before serving. A warm blanket and a good movie highly recommended 🙂

What is your go-to remedy? My other favorite one is Mexican Hot Chocolate.

    Mmm. That drink looks so good! It’s been way too cold in Minnesota too. I’m already over the winter and it hasn’t even begun yet! A nice hot adult beverage like the Hot Toddy is perfect for getting through these rough winters.
