For those under-the-weather days when a cup of tea just won’t cut it.
It’s that time of the year when everyone you know is battling a sore throat ‚Äî it seems like the whole world is getting sick. When that starts to happen, I know it’s only a matter of time until I get sick, too! The dark winter days have started to pile up, and it feels like an eternity since we felt the soothing sunshine. Add long days at work to the equation, and you’ve got a guaranteed recipe for the sniffles.
Herbal teas are great, but there are some days when they just don’t pack enough of a punch. When I’m really feeling under the weather, only a hot toddy will do. This one is packed with lemon juice for vitamin C, honey, which soothes sore throats and is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibiotic, and a generous dose of bourbon calms the nerves so you can get some all-important sleep. Most importantly, it’s easy to stir up, even if you’re feeling extra foggy. Don your coziest PJs, grab a mug, and you’ll be recharged and fully rested in no time.
