A hot toddy in winter warms your core and gets rid of a sore throat and sniffle–my type of medicine!
After this delicious combination came together last night during a snow storm I got excited to make an iced toddy version this summer—yummm!
Blood Oranges, 2
Ginger, 2 tsp
Honey, 1 Tb
Whiskey-Jim Bean Honey
1. Juice orange, add grated ginger, and honey. Blend to liquify pulp etc.
2. Steep tea.
3. Add one part juice mixture, one-two 😉 part(s) whiskey, two parts tea.
Mint. Lemon. Honey. Water. Yes, it’s that easy!
This is a perfect summer/anytime drink. The mint is refreshing and the lemon adds a slight tang to make it interesting.
Honey (Agave/Coconut Sugar are welcome substitutes)
1. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Meanwhile, wash fresh mint in cool water.
2. Once water comes to a boil, add mint and a couple of tablespoons of honey, to your liking.
3. Allow mint to steep in the water until they turn from bright green to a dark shade. Remove leaves.
4. Squeeze a lemon into the water then add cold water and ice to dilute the mixture.
I found that making a ‘concentrate’ of the mint-honey-lemon allowed me better control of the flavor…and it chills faster so you can drink it sooner! Yesssyummmm!
