Irish cold remedy (hot toddy)

    5 min

    This is my slight variation to the traditional hot toddy. Have one of these at the first signs of a cold! As children (when we were sick) we were given these but with very little whiskey. They were the only thing that let us get a decent amount of sleep. At that time there was no manuka honey so it was just normal honey or brown sugar which works nicely.

    Well, first of all I'm trying to understand what, "and pour over boiling water" means!?  -  19 Mar 2018
