Woke up with a cold this morning….ugh! Best solution? A Hot Toddy! And it is so much tastier than those over the counter cold remedies. Plus, I have the ingredients in my pantry and won’t have to get out of my cozy jammies to go to the drug store.
The heat warms, the lemon and honey soothes and the alcohol will lull me to sleep…sleep that gives my body a chance to heal.
The alcohol also dilates the blood vessels which helps the mucus membranes to deal with the infection. In this case, more is not better; only drink one. Too much alcohol will have the opposite effect and you won’t be able to sleep!
Even if you don’t have a cold, this is a Gr8 winter drink!
The perfect hot drink for cold winter months.
Then take a nice nap!
