The Hot Toddy....cold remedy or just a good healthy drink
Now there are several versions to this...
2 ounces whiskey ( use Jack Daniels) or personal preference.
1 tablespoon honey
4 ounces water (hot from the tap)
1 teaspoon lemon juice (stuff in the plastic lemon)
1 slice fresh lemon (optional)
and may I throw in cinnamon, again, (optional)
Now let me tell you my Grandmother's(Big-MaMa) version.
Now the exact measurements I'm not sure....I just remember watching her and just imitating!
Start with water in a small pot and 4 thin slices of Ginger Root
Bring it up to a boil then remove from heat.
Pour all contents in a coffee cup
Add HONEY....my guess from a teaspoon to a tablespoon
FRESH LEMON(the actual fruit).....slice it in half and squeeze the juice into the cup...even take a spoon and dig out it into the cup.
give it a couple of good stirs, let cool, then sip!
