Today the cold weather hit me– my throat ached; my energy dipped. Ba humbug.
What are your favorite “cures” for a cold?
I think a hot toddy and a bad movie do quite nicely. Here’s how I make hot toddies, or rather, how Christian makes them– because when you’re sick it’s extra wonderful when someone else makes one for you.
Hot Toddy for One
1 tea bag of your choosing (I like a fruity herbal tea)
1 C hot water
1 shot bourbon
Squeeze of lemon juice
Optional: 1 tsp. honey and/or cinnamon stick
Brew tea in hot water for several minutes in large mug. Add remaining ingredients. Sip.
