Blood Orange Honey Toddy

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!

Mint-Honey-Lemon Iced 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.

Ingredients:

Mint

Water

Honey (Agave/Coconut Sugar are welcome substitutes)

Lemon

Ice

1. BringΒ  4 cups of water to a boil.Β  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!
