Step By Step  

A warming hot beverage with a kick—perfect for cold winter days!

As prepared by Macheesmo,

There’s a very old household remedy to the common cold that involves whiskey, lemon, and hot water. It’s supposed to soothe the throat and scare off any strange bacteria and viruses.

I absolutely cannot vouch for this cure.

What I can vouch for, though, is this cinnamon hot toddy being the perfect cure for cold days. If you have a little scratch in your throat, it might help, but I can guarantee it’ll put a smile on your face!

The other good news? It’s super-easy to make.

The basics of it are lemon, cinnamon (a whole stick), honey, good quality bourbon, and hot water. I keep all of these things in stock in the winter!

Juice about 1/4 of the lemon (or more if you want) and add it to a cup with the honey.

Pour in the bourbon and use the cinnamon stick to stir everything together.

Then pour in the hot water! Let the mixture steep with the cinnamon stick for 5-6 minutes before drinking it so the flavors can mingle and the water can cool off just a bit.

Sip it and relax. Life is good, even in the winter!
