Hot Toddy

Hi All.

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.


Recipe Notes:
*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!

Hot Toddy

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.


  1. This looks good. It sounds like it will be great for a cold. I have a link party on Wednesdays, and I would love it if you would link this and any other posts. It is called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party. It runs from Wednesday to Sundays.
