LaggedyAnne's Grandma's Famous Hot Toddy
Hot toddies are a great way to chase a cold or flu away, and are commonly enjoyed before bedtime.
Boil a pot of water. Fill a coffee mug 1/3rd full of Wild Turkey (a brand of whiskey). Add about 1 teaspoon of sugar to the liquor, then fill the cup with hot water. Add a teaspoon of honey, a squirt of fresh lemon, and sprinkle with cinnamon to taste.
The great thing about toddies is that they are completely improvisational. Rather than whiskey, you might try brandy or rum. Instead of lemon, try orange or other citrus flavors. Skip the cinnamon and go with cloves or nutmeg for an earthier flavor.
To get the best results, breathe in the steam while waiting for your mug to cool slightly. Once the toddy is cool enough for your mouth, enjoy!
