8. Hot Toddy
Call it hot totty. Call it hot tottie. The drink won’t change its taste. If you want something hotter than a hot chocolate tonight, then hot toddy is your bet. It takes less than a minute to make this winter beverage. I don’t drink often, but when I do I love to create something really special.
- 1/4 cup boiling-hot water
- 2 tablespoons bourbon
- 1 tablespoon mild honey
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Directions: In a 6-ounce mug, put lemon juice, bourbon, and honey. Top off with 1/4 cup boiling-hot water and stir for a minute or until honey is fully dissolved. What can be easier or quicker?
These are my go-to warm drinks that my partner and I love. I believe there’s something special about these hot beverages. Not only do they make the winter season warmer, they are diet-friendly as well.
