It is cold. You have always heard, “I will just hang out and have a hot toddy.”
Now, if it is your crazy aunt, she may be talking about waiting for her cute neighbor named Todd to stop by. For the rest of us, it is a drink. If you know how to make it.
Have you ever taken the time to wonder, what IS a hot toddy anyway? Have you ever had one?
I looked around and have found a recipe so that you will be more informed next time you are at the ski lodge.
Hot Toddy Recipe
8 Oz Hot Water
1 Teabag (Herbal Tea)
1 oz Bourbon

Pour hot water into mug and steep tea for 2-3 minutes. Remove tea bag and add honey, stirring to dissolve. Pour in whiskey, add squeeze of lemon, and stir.
As a bonus, it turns out that it is also a good relief from the common cold.
And now you know.
