Whiskey & Honey – The Winter Warrior (and a Hot Toddy Recipe)!

With the cold weather approaching, we thought it would be a good time to share a recipe for one of our favorites: The Hot Toddy!

First things first, we want to make it clear that we’re not suggesting that a boozy beverage will cure all your ails, but it definitely has it’s benefits.

1- the combination of whiskey, honey, hot water and lemon will warm you up from
the inside out
2- the lemon is great for a cold (vitamin C!), and the whiskey + honey combo acts as
a mild anesthetic to ease that sore throat
3-whiskey dilates blood vessels so the mucus membranes can break down and
fight the infection (gross, we know, but had to mention)
4-whiskey can aid in the digestion process so it’s good for your tummy too! Not too
much, obviously, but a little goes a long way
5 PSA: don’t mix alcohol with medications!

Now that you have some facts, let’s make a Hot Toddy! Recipe below:
