I've taken to knocking back a hot toddy almost nightly, lately, what with all the things going on in the world right now. I don't know, I guess technically a whiskey laced toddy reportedly interferes with sleep quality, but I feel like I've been snoozing pretty doggone good based on how I feel upon waking in the morning (5:00am slarm).
One tea bag black tea (decaffeinated)
1 tablespoon wild unfiltered honey (locally made)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 slice of fresh lemon squeezed in (~ 3/8" thick)
1 shot glass favorite whiskey
Nice and hot (I cheat and microwave it)
Stir thoroughly, like a madman. Cinnamon doesn't really dissolve, but a brisk long stir brings out the cinnamon flavor and aroma.
I steep the tea bag long, I like it strong. Nice and dark.
