That darn cold and flu that I have managed to avoid for the last few months finally caught up with me!
But it’s not all bad news, because it gave me a good reason to make myself a deliciously soothing concoction known as a “Hot Toddy”.
I can’t say for sure why or how, but it does seem to bring some much needed relief when you are feeling congested.
Now, there’s no need to wait until you are sick to try this!
It’s also a great hot drink to have on any cool, fall or winter day.
Give it a try, stay warm and stay healthy.
