Scenario: You’re sick (cough, sore throat, raspy voice, typical winter shit) and you don’t want to go to the store. You’ve also got bourbon and a lime.
An idea emerges.
The Improvised Hot Toddy #1
1 oz of bourbon/rye
1 teaspoon of agave (you can use honey if you’re not vegan or don’t care)
juice of half a lime
1/2 teaspoon of ginger, grated or sliced
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon (if you have a cinnamon stick, use that instead)
Stir the lime juice, spices, and agave nectar together.
Stir in bourbon and pour hot water into the cup until it’s full.
Here are some other things that can make you feel better when you’re ill:
Volcano foot mask from Lush– The smell alone will put your mind at ease.
Rudolph seasonal face mask from Lush– don’t put this on while you’re drinking the hot toddy, you’ll end up eating it.
Cuddle with a small animal. They’re better than a space heater.
