Our Hot Toddy Addiction

Goddess and I have a love of lemon, ginger and honey! We really love our lemon and Goddess will  eat a whole lemon at a time if she has the chance. With the flu being a pretty big concern this year in my world (I know about 30 who have had it this year); I have started making an age old elixir to try to combat all sickness from my world. Hot Toddy has been used as a natural remedy for aches and pains as well as soothing symptoms of common colds.

Whether it works or you think it does the point is a Hot Toddy doesn't just taste good, it is good for you.

The warm/hot water will help ease your congestion while the lemon and honey can help lesson your congestion as well as prevent dehydration. It is also good for a sore throat and we add cinnamon to ours because we love the smell.

We don't just drink it because we think it will help our colds, we even drink it when we are healthy as a horse.

How We Make Ours

While we boil the water (the old fashion way of course) We cut a lemon and squeeze it until there is nothing left into our mugs. Then we run a spoon through it taking all those yummy pieces of the lemon as well.

We then add the honey as well as cinnamon and stir.

We add the hot water and sip as we like it really hot!

Then we add slices of the lemon into our cups! We do love our lemon.

It only takes about 5 minutes from start to finish and it taste amazing!
