Hot Toddy

December 7, 2011 at 10:25 pm (Beverages)

Seems like cold and flu season has just kicked off on the adult portion of our household.  I decided to go ahead and give in to the old school treatment.



  • 1 oz brandy, whiskey or rum (Jack Daniels is what we went with)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tea bag (used my favorite – Good Earth Original Sweet & Spicy Tea – caffeine free)


  • 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.
