A couple of weekends ago I was really feeling under the weather. Luckily, it wasn’t the flu. I was feeling just bad enough not to want to get off the couch, but not so bad that I couldn’t enjoy making (and consuming) this hot toddy and watching Twilight (God it was so horrible but I couldn’t stop). Disclaimer: I would not recommend this drink in place of real medicine! I drank mine with a side of Zicam. This would also be great on any cold winter’s night — sick or not!
1 shot bourbon
1 tbsp honey
½ tsp brown sugar
1 cup water
juice of 1 lemon wedge
garnish with cinnamon stick and lemon peel
Bring cup of water to a boil. Add all other ingredients to a mug or old fashioned glass. Pour boiling water into mug/glass and stir until brown sugar dissolves.
