We found a great little recipe on Pinterest and thought it was appropriate for the bone chilling temps we have here in New England. If you are feeling like you are catching a cold or just need something warm, try this Hot Toddy recipe! 

Earl Grey Hot Toddy

serves 2

  • 2 Earl Grey tea bags
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1-2 oz of your favorite bourbon
  • 4 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp of honey (more if you want it a little sweeter)

Put the water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Remove the water from the heat, add in the tea bags and cover.  Allow the tea to steep for about 3-5 minutes.

After a few minutes, pour in the lemon juice and mix in the honey.

Add 1/2-1 oz of the bourbon to two coffee mugs, pour the tea mixture over each.  Garnish with a slice of lemon.
