The Hot Toddy (and The Virgin Toddy)

Got a nasty cold?  The hot toddy eats that…

hot toddy

1 ½ cups hot water

1 Lemon, freshly juiced

2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 Tbs local raw honey

1 shot whisky or apple cider vinegar

  1. Add lemon and garlic to boiling water, low boil about 5 minutes

  2. Strain the boiled liquid into a tea cup and add raw honey and whisky/cider vinegar


Drink as hot as you can stand it, as quickly as you can.  Get yourself under the blankets immediately and go to sleep.  The point is to sweat it out and rest while this medicine goes to work in your body.  Drink this 2 nights in a row and you should feel good enough to get back to your life.  This works like a charm for me and my family.  Thanks to Mama Ajoke for the recipe.
