A hot toddy

Boooooo nasty winter cold! Feel totally rotten and was even shouting at people in my sleep last night, gotta love having a temperature!

The only thing guaranteed to make me feel better, apart from large amounts of paracetamol and sleep, (without the shouting) is this winter warmer drink.

I don’t know if this is what a ‘hot toddy’ really is, but who cares?!

You will need:

  • 1 glass of freshly squeezed orange juice (if you’re feeling really ill and sorry for yourself you shall be allowed to use juice from a carton…. just this once mind.)
  • A teaspoon of honey
  • A ‘nip’ of whiskey. You can be in charge of how big the nip is. 😉

Pour the juice and honey into a pan and heat until warm and the honey is dissolved. Add your whiskey and give a little stir. Pour it into a mug and enjoy.

According to Wikipedia; the American Lung Association recommends avoiding drinking hot toddies as a cold remedy as the alcohol may cause dehydration. Ppft, what do they know? I feel better already!
