Day 74. A Hot Toddy Will Make You Feel Better

Thank you, Laura Cockrel-Pearlman, for the suggestion of making myself feel better by concocting a hot toddy.  It'll cure what ails you. (-;

I don't really have a bottle of Jack Daniels in my house, but here's a good recipe if you do.

This is from "Dr. Pat's Hot Toddy Cold Remedy at


  • 2 ounces whiskey (we use Jack Daniels)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 ounces water (hot from the tap)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (we use the stuff in the plastic lemon)
  • 1 slice fresh lemon (if we don't have this we don't use it) (optional)


  1. Place the whisky in a large microwave safe mug.
  2. Add the honey.
  3. Pour the hot water into the mug over the spoon you used for the honey to get off the last little drops.
  4. Add the lemon juice and stir well.
  5. Place the mug in the microwave for 1 minute or until it is piping hot, but not boiling.
  6. Add the lemon slice and serve.
