We have found a way to overcome the bitter cold days of winter! By wearing super cozy robes and drinking spicy hot toddies!
This simple recipe is gingery, lemony and of course boozy!!
First start off by steeping a quick "tea".
- 3 cups of water
- 2-3 lemons
- A big chunk of ginger
- Dash of chili flakes
- Cinnamon stick
Add these ingredients to a covered sauce pan and simmer 10-20 min. The longer you simmer the spicier it will be. We like it spicy!
Strain, add to mugs and sweeten with maple syrup.
Add a dash of chili flakes if you like to live dangerously!
This tea is great as is, but now it's time for the booze! We're bourbon boys so we are adding a shot...or two! Not into whiskey? Dark rum works just as well.
Will this cure your cold? Kick out your flu? Who really knows...but it tastes delicious will warm you up for sure!
