A hot toddy for what ails you

A classic hot toddy has alcohol in it, but I advise against that if you’re taking any type of OTC cold relief product.

You’ll be zonked out enough without adding hooch to the mix!

Instead, use your favorite herbal or wellness tea or for nighttime, a sleepy tea.

    I love hot tea and honey in the winter even when I don’t have a cold. Where did you find the star anise? I haven’t ever seen that used in a recipe. Oh, and I agree about buying spices and herbs in the hispanic section. I’ve been buying some of from there for years.

    I haven’t seen these honey products before, but I’ll definitely be looking for them now. I just want to wrap my hands around that hot toddy and sip away at it in front of a roaring fire.
