  • 8 ounces of boiling water
  • 1 herbal tea bag of your choice, (Herbal tea is recommended the caffeine in black tea will only keep you awake...and you need to sleep!)
  • 1 ounce whiskey, any kind will work.
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey


  • Pour the boiling water over the tea bag into a mug.
  • Steep the tea for a couple minutes until it reaches the strength you prefer, then remove the tea bag.
  • Add the whiskey, lemon juice, and honey to the mug.
  • Stir until all the honey is dissolved.
  • Cuddle up under a cozy blanket and inhale the steam and sip your Hot Toddy until gone.
  • Then take a nice nap!


Gr8 Variations:
  • You don't have to use tea at all, simply add the whiskey, lemon juice, and honey to a cup of very hot water, this is the more classic version.
  • Try using apple cider instead of tea, just heat it up before adding the whiskey, lemon juice and honey.
