Like many of you, I drink several cups of coffee a day. I don’t typically drink hot tea, however when the weather starts to get chilly (here in Maryland that is around the end of September) you really can’t beat an awesome cup of hot tea.

A Hot Toddy to be exact.

A Hot Toddy is traditionally a hot drink of honey and herbs mixed with liquor such as scotch, bourbon, or whiskey. An evening Hot Toddy is one of my favorite things about fall and winter.

My go to for a long time has always Celestial’s Sleepytime tea with some sugar or honey and a shot of bourbon. It is an awesome nightcap. However, after discovering that the main ingredient, Chamomile, is a natural blood thinner, I decided to try some alternative recipes to change it up a bit.

One of my FAVORITE Companies to buy looseleaf tea from is Farmhouse Teas.

Read on for some awesome hot toddy recipes to make your fall/winter cozy and warm!

1) Hot Cinnamon Chai

Cinnamon Chai tea truely encompasses the essence of fall for me. It is just the perfect fall drink, alcohol or not.

Don’t forget to add the milk! It is a chai tea if it isn’t brewed with both hot water and hot milk.

Let me know what you think!

2) Traditional Hot Toddy

Traditionally used as a cold remedy, I was a little skeptical because it is essentially hot watered down bourbon, which isn’t too appealing.

However, with the lemon and honey, it really transforms into an soothing and refreshing hot drink.

I could see it working wonders for a cold.

Give it a try!

6) Lemon Lavender Hot Toddy

While I love the smell of lavender, I don’t know if I have ever TASTED it. I wasn’t sure how this one would go but I was pleasantly surprised.

It has a refreshing, floral scent as you would expect and was really quite nice.

The Disaronno is sweet on its own, so you do not need to add additional sweetener.

Try the recipe!
