Classic Hot Toddy


Some people believe the Hot Toddy will cure a cold!  I don’t know what to make of that, but I do know that on winter night when you just can’t get warm- this is the answer.  Bourbon, hot water, lemon, honey, sage and cloves- the ingredient list sounds like it could cure SOMETHING, right?!  Put on some comfortable PJs, cozy socks, blast Christmas music and play this.  It’ll be magical, I promise.  Enjoy!  xx- Sarah {This post was produced in collaboration with Sarah Dickenson}
