In addition, I find steeping a fresh slice of ginger in the hot water for a few minutes is nice if you’re feeling congested.
- 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) whiskey, bourbon, brandy, or dark rum
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice (from 1/2 fresh lemon)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/4 cup boiling hot water (or up to 1/2 cup, if you'd like your toddy to be less strong)
- 1 chamomile tea bag
- Lemon wheel, for garnish (optional)
1 Combine the liquor, lemon juice, and honey in a small mug.
2 Add the hot water and stir until the honey dissolves.
3 Add the tea bag and steep for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea. Remove the tea bag and garnish with a fresh lemon.
Enjoy in bed with a favorite book.
