You may (or may not) have been expecting the second 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats today. But this past week I got sick. Nothing horrible, just a nasty cold.
I firmly believe that when you get sick, that’s life’s way of telling you to slow down a bit and not work so hard. So I listened.
I’m going to get back to some resting, but I plan to get back to those Christmas Treats next week. But in the meantime, if you’re feeling like me, grab a Hot Toddy right before bed and you’ll sleep like a baby.
The hot tea opens up the sinuses and the honey soothes coughs. The whiskey warms you right up and the whole thing soothes you right to sleep.
*I use Bigelow “Sweet Dreams” tea in my Hot Toddy. It’s a relaxing blend to chamomile and mint that I love. You can really use any tea you like, just make sure there's no caffeine!
1 mug hot water
1 bag of tea
½-1 oz whiskey
1-2 tsp honey
Steep the tea in the water for 3 or so minutes. Remove tea bag and stir in the whiskey and honey. Relax, enjoy, sleep well, get better.
