Feeling sick? You’ll want to try my four ingredient hot toddy to sooth your cold, cough, or sore throat. It’s so much better than cough drops!
For the last month I have been sick. Like hacking-out-a-lung-no-voice-the-doctor-is-my friend-sick. I think my issues are finally getting sorted out, but I’ve cracked a rib from coughing so hard in the process, so renovations probably won’t be happening until after Christmas.
Update: I did not actually crack a rib, but it sure felt like it! Apparently I strained my intercostal muscles. Considering I’m a classical singer and use them more aggressively than most of the population on a regular basis, my cough was extreme.
However, one happy discovery through all of this was this hot-toddy recipe that kept my coughing to a minimum. The Dad of one of my voice students suggested it, and I was so glad he did. This version is non-alcoholic, but you can add your alcohol of choice if you’re so inclined.Feeling sick? Try a non-alcoholic hot toddy to soothe your cough and cold.Click To Tweet
The main ingredients are lemon and honey, but the spice that makes this one a bit different from other toddies out there is cinnamon. I’m a huge fan of cinnamon, so this drink made my taste buds quite happy.
Here’s hoping you’ll keep healthy during this cold and flu season! And if you don’t, you know where to turn.
