Hot Toddy recipe and the Lemony Drink of Death
Hot Toddies. They always sound so warming and wonderful. Everyone I know who indulges swears by them as remedies for colds and flus. And in the winter months, what could be better? Plus, there's always a little of the witches brew feeling about them, which I love...
These are two recipes from a friend of mine, she changes them every time she makes them, depending on what she feels like. I'm going to be making one tonight, but I figured I'd share them with you today. Odds are some of you are sick too, and in need...
So, welcome to Dani's Hot Toddy and the awesomely named Lemony drink of Death...
lemon juice, hot water, whiskey or golden (or dark) rum, honey, and mint. probable just 15-30 mls of booze depending how alcoholic you like it.
lemony drink of death
On a saucepan, brew juice of half a lemon honey a birdseye or similiar chilli (you can just splice along the middle and de-seed) - optional clove sliced garlic - optional grated or thinly sliced ginger - generous amount 1/2 cup or 2/3 cup water
Brew for 10-15 mins. At end you can strain mixture, and once you have topped up with boiling water in a mug, have 2-3 portions.
Once on mug, add a disprin or asproclear (esp if suffering from sore joints, sore throat or glands), a nip of scotch, and a sprig of mint!
It's quite a full on drink, but good to just swallow down. add vitamin c powder if you have it.
