The Hot Toddy

The Hot Toddy is a fine beverage, particularly suited to cold snowy days. It’s also easy to make and economical. Consider having this drink around for your New Year’s Eve party!

Black tea (I recommend an English blend. Find PG Tips at FoAN.)
Whisky (Cheap is fine here. Mild Scotch is best, but bourbon works as well.)

Make a pot of tea, quarter the lemons, and grab a teaspoon. Fill each teacup 4/5 full of tea, squeeze in one lemon quarter, stir in one teaspoon of honey, and top off the cup with whisky. Drink immediately.
