Bourbon hot toddy

With more recipe variations than Lady Gaga has hair-dos, one thing we can all agree on is that nothing warms a cold winter night or comforts you from the flu like a hot toddy. It's got a slightly (ahem) higher alcohol content than Nyquil, but it actually tastes great. 

Make sure to use a good bourbon because you want a drink that that's warm and nutty, not like gasoline. Maker's Mark is a terrific mid-grade bourbon that's perfect for this recipe and the small single-serving sized bottles found behind the counter at the liquor store are perfect for 3 or 4 hot toddies.

Ingredients (Yields 1/2 coffee mug):

  • 4 tbsp bourbon
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4 tsp fresh squeezed lemon 
  • 1/2 cup boiling hot water
  1. Add all ingredients to a mug and stir.
  2. Curl up with a good book in front of the fire and sip until you fall asleep.
