Hot Toddies for All

The husband has been making great hot toddies for years from his dad’s recipe, but he’s been trying to make a new version recently. It would help if we had all of the ingredients together all at once… We do tonight! And we have three grandparents here to drink with us, too. That’s our plan- get all the grandparents smashed then send them off to the official Grandparents Day at their grandson’s school tomorrow morning, hungover. “Really early,” says mom-in-law, “don’t leave that part out!” Lol.

Hot Toddies-

Per drink, you need
4 oz boiling water
2 oz bourbon
1 Tablespoon of honey
1/4 lemon
1 cinnamon stick

It is important to put the honey in the glass first, then pour the hot water in second… the honey needs to dissolve into the water. Squeeze the lemon into the class, then pour in your booze. Stir with the cinnamon stick.


Former Favorite Recipe-

Leave out the cinnamon stick and honey
Use half coke and half water
Nuke for about 45 seconds

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!
