What The Doctor Ordered…sortof!

For all that ails you during this coughing, sneezing, wheezing, sickly season…I tried this last night, after suffering for over three weeks. YES, darn it, three weeks. So I was game for anything. Well, it didn’t heal me, but it sure as heck suppressed my cough…and I think I may just sip on it every night until I’m well! Thank you Woodford Reserve and brown sugar. Packing a punch there my friend. Hello Christmas!

adult-beverages-hot-toddy
4 cloves
1 lemon twist
2 t brown sugar
1/4 t lemon juice
2 oz Bourbon (the finest you have on hand!)

Fill a mug with boiling water and let stand for two minutes to warm.
Meanwhile, place cloves in lemon twist and set aside.
Empty the mug and fill halfway with fresh boiling water.
Add sugar and stir to dissolve.
Add prepared lemon twist and stir.
Add lemon juice and bourbon.
Stir to combine all.

Call your cough quits!! (Almost!)

  1. Ariane and John gave me this my entire life! All but the cloves. And it always worked! Glad you’ve found the magic cure. My fave! It knocks out the cough and you at the same time – a good night’s sleep. Ha! Best!

  2. Great recipe! I am going to try this as a preventative! So sorry you have been sick!!
