It’s a brisk 51 degrees in Los Angeles right now, which means we’re all breaking out the parkas. (No joke, people in LA cannot handle “cold” weather. Myself very much included.)
To warm up this weekend, I decided to make one of my favorite drinks of all time: a hot toddy.
I don’t know why I love hot toddies so very much. They’re a grandma drink, and people have told me as much. But I think it’s the combination of yummy bourbon and sweet honey. And all of that hot water to warm me up. And basically everything about it. It’s the perfect winter drink, and it’s super simple to make.
- Start by heating up a pot of water. To gauge how much you need, measure each person as one cup. So for two people, boil two cups of water, and so on.
- Add a teaspoon of honey, and 2-4 tablespoons of bourbon to a mug. (That’s all up to how warm you want to feel after drinking this.)
- Once the water comes to a boil, fill up your cup, and stir all of the ingredients together.
- Top off the drink with a squeeze of lemon, and you’re ready to feel WARM ALL OVER.
Happy drinking, and stay warm!
