Hot Toddy Recipe for Colds

1. Pour hot steaming boiling water into cup.
2. Add 2 tsps. lemon juice.
3. Add 2 tsps. honey (any kind).
4. Lightly dip one herbal tea bag (any flavor) in cup.
5. Sip slowly. Repeat every two hours (or as needed) for cold/flu.


Add 1 tsp. of rum, brandy, or cordial.

NOTE: The purpose of this drink is threefold:

1. The hot steam from the boiled water will help loosen the mucus in your nose and throat and enable you to breathe more freely.

2. The lemon dislodges the mucus from your throat and adds much-needed vitamin C.

3. The honey not only coats your throat to prevent redness, but also soothes the throat irritation from the dislodged mucus, as well as adding nutritional benefits.

4. If you add the alcohol, it helps to “sweat” out whatever fever you may have and helps you sleep better.

Adding the tea is not necessary unless you want additional flavoring, but do not use regular tea as most are caffeinated. Green tea is my personal favorite for this drink.

Hot toddies have been around for centuries, especially in England and Ireland. What I’ve particularly noticed is that upon drinking two or three cups of this tea (spaced two hours apart), my cold symptoms are reduced dramatically within 24 hours.
