Friday Night Drinks

I have had a persistent cold this week so tonight's drink is a Hot Toddy, the perfect remedy to fight cold and flu. Of course I need something cosy and warm to wear and this cute outfit seems ideal. Happy Friday!

Hot Toddy
Pour a shot of Whisky into a cup or mug, add boiling water to it. Add a spoonful of honey or sugar. Add a half slice of lemon, 2 cloves and, if you have one, a cinnamon stick. leave it it to brew for 3-5 minutes.
Depending on preference, you can remove the cloves and cinnamon stick before drinking. Although, leaving them in makes a toddy even better for clearing a blocked nose and relieving a head cold.


  1. For a cold. If you drink a Hot Toddy every night, it will last for two weeks. If you drink nothing, if will last for forteen days.

    I hope yours goes soon. Bisou, Cro.

  2. And the perfect glass for a hot rum toddy? A wonderful 'rummer' (18th to early 19th century).
