Hot Toddy Wonder
Recipe is from Tracy Shutterbean. Thank you darling.
1 teaspoon grated ginger root
1 ounce or more bourbon. (Or pour a splash more in when no one’s looking)
Juice from one large lemon (or to taste)
8 ounces hot water
1. Cut a two inch piece of ginger root, and using the side of a spoon, scrape off the skin to peel, and then grate.
2. Put honey, bourbon, lemon juice, and ginger root in an empty glass measuring cup. I started off with half the lemon juice, and added more later to make sure I didn’t use too much.
3. Boil the water, and pour 8 ounces in to the measuring glass. If you need to, stir until the honey is fully dissolved. Let this steep for 2-3 minutes.
4. Strain the toddy mixture into a serving glass, and enjoy your few minutes of sweetness. And the bourbon. Always enjoy bourbon.
I hope to kick this cold soon, as I want to get back on my feet to bake cookies and enjoy some canned beer. But never fear, if I’m not well by Wednesday I’ll still post something pretty for you to look at, drink and/or eat.
