Hot Toddy

Winter is a great time for trying new recipes that warm you from head to toe and they don’t have to be just soups or stews. A hot toddy is the perfect adult beverage for a cold winter night.  There are plenty of rumors out there that a hot toddy will even cure what’s ailing you. I will not make any claims that a hot toddy can cure a cold but many times through the years I have sat down and sipped on a hot toddy while I had a cold and I sure felt better after.

The biggest point to remember with this recipe is adjust to your own tastes. If you want it sweeter add more honey. If you want it with a bit more tang add some more lemon juice. Play around with it until you have it just right for your tastes.
