Recipe of the Week..."Hot Toddy"

My sweetie was feeling a little under the weather this past weekend...sore throat, aches, head congestion...so I made a hot toddy for him before bedtime to help soothe his throat. Here's how I made it:

  • 1 oz. brandy
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • Cinnamon stick
  • Whole cloves
Place the honey, brandy and orange juice in the bottom of a mug. Boil water, cinnamon stick and whole cloves together for about 5 minutes. Pour water mixture into mug, removing the cinnamon stick and cloves. Serve warm.

Have a blessed week!
