The dress the first time I wore it (January 2007):
Winter is for velvet . . . and hot toddies! After I posted my 365 photo on instagram, I got a request for a recipe. This is my cure for a sore throat:
Tea (I prefer lemon)
Combine tea bag, one lemon wedge, one stick of cinnamon, and 2 whole cloves in a microwave-safe mug. Add water to about one inch from the top. (You want to leave room for the whiskey.) Microwave until very hot.
Remove from microwave and fill to the brim with cinnamon whiskey. Carefully stir and enjoy!
This is both numbing and soothing for a sore throat. If you are suffering from other cold or flu-like symptoms, you will forget you’re sick at all after a few of these!
*I’m cheap and cinnamon sticks are expensive, so I reuse the stick for multiple toddies
**You can also substitute other sweetened whiskeys, like honey, apple, or maple flavored whiskey. If you use an unsweetened whiskey, add a tablespoon or two of honey to the cup before microwaving.
