Ultimate Hot Toddy For Colds Recipe 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Say goodbye to that cold with this ultimate hot toddy for colds recipe. Flu season is here, for many of us, it is round about the time we all get the terrible flu. We have a solution for you that is far more healthy than cough syrup and tastes a million times better too.
Firstly please don’t follow other recipes which say you should microwave your honey and whiskey together. This is just crazy as you ruin all the goodness in your honey, not to mention give yourself unneeded radiation.
Although this might not completely kill your cold it will certainly make you feel a million times better.


Ingredients:
200ml – 250ml water – ideally the less water, the better you won’t get the full effects of this drink
Tea bag – either green tea or sleepy time tea (depending if you want to sleep)
1-2 slices of organic lemon
4 to 8 whole organic cloves(not essential but they do help)
1-2 spoons manuka/raw/natural honey
Dash of lemon juice
1-2 measures whiskey of choice – We personally recommend Irish whiskey or a decent whiskey (splash out and get the good stuff, you don’t need a big bottle). Jameson works well too.
Cinnamon stick
Optional – little bit of Ginger sliced or chopped


Directions:
Pour water into kettle and boil (easy right).
Slice lemon and place whole cloves into the lemon slice. Place this into a mug or glass.
Add the green tea bag or sleepytime tea bag (if you don’t have either it is okay)
Spoon the honey into the mug, leaving the spoon in the mug and add a squeeze of lemon juice.
Add whiskey and pour over boiling water, stir well to melt honey.
Add the ginger if you have it.
Sit back put on some Netflix, rest up and wait for the hot toddy to do its magic.
*Repeat if needed but be sensible.

Wellness Tip
Your refrigerator - How long is food safe?
Food safety experts recommend that you eventually discard opened containers of food, even if stored in the refrigerator. For example: discard juice in 7-10 days, olives in 2 weeks, salsa in 1 month, mayo in 2 months, and ketchup, jam and jelly after 6 months. Even in the refrigerator, bacteria can grow and multiply. Play it safe. Regularly clean out your refrigerator. Keep the thermostat set at 40 degrees or below.
