So I have a cold this weekend

This will be a quick entry, but I wanted to get these written down before the alcohol kicked in. I took it upon myself to make a couple of hot toddies. I don't know if they had any actual medical benefit, but it was nice to put a warm drink in my insulated travel mug (the one that reads, "This Might Be Vodka") and sip.

Recipe 1
  • 1 oz rum (I used Plantation 5 year, which is from Barbados)
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup OR 1 T honey (I actually used lemon syrup, but I don't expect everyone to have leftovers from making candied lemon peel)
  • 8 oz hot water

Recipe 2
  • 1 oz gin (Boodles was what I have in the house. I'm fond of Travis McGee)
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 T + 1 t honey
  • 8 oz hot water or lime tea (Numi makes a delicious one, but it's not easy to find in stores)
Recipe 3
  • 1 oz brandy
  • 1 T sugar (I used Sugar in the Raw)
  • 8 oz black tea (I had an assam)

I'm pondering something with lemon ginger tea. Watch this space for more ideas.
