Hot Toddy's anyone?

So I have had a horrible cold this week.  Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and was coughing non stop.  So I got up and looked at different home remedies for my cough and found most suggestions were for a Hot Toddy.  It certainly seemed like the most pleasant suggestion.  Though I will have to say that since it was 3 am and I did not feel inclined to visit an all night grocery store I had to make due with lemon juice instead of fresh lemon and Kentucky bourbon for my whiskey.  I had plenty of honey on hand seems I had bought 2 or 3 bottles and they kept getting tucked away in a cupboard so when cleaning up and organizing a few weeks ago I found I had 3 bottles.  I used a decaf English Breakfast tea since I was wanting to go back to bed afterwards although in hind sight I think I had some chamomile that would have probably been nicer if I had looked.  Well needless to say it worked like a charm and I was able to continue my beauty rest.  Well cheers and good health to all.

  1. I need to "toddy up" one of these cold, crummy nights we've been having in the South lately. Thanks for the suggestion!
