Personally, I do not know if the hot toddy is a cure for anything, but it sure makes living with a cold a lot easier! This is my grandmama’s recipe and it works every time.
- Brew a pot of black tea adding a cinnamon stick, some cloves and a few whole cardamom seeds
- Pour a mug of it. Add a liberal dose of honey or brown sugar
- Add a slug (approximately 2 oz.) of rye whiskey
- Stir until the honey is not gloppy anymore, and finish with a squeeze of lemon juice (for the vitamin C)
