Cold and flu season can be tough, and this season has been especially brutal. Are you looking for something that is all natural and will make you feel better ASAP? This Hot Toddy recipe for colds and flu will do it! Please note that the adult version is contains alcohol, but I’m also offering a kids/non-alcoholic version.
I remember my mom making Hot Toddys for my dad when he was sick with colds or the flu. As kids, they let us try a sip and we thought it tasted awful! Now I have learned the warmth of whiskey helps with sleep. Lemon and cinnamon have natural healing properties. Honey coats the throat and boosts the immune system.
