With Flu season hitting us hard, we thought we'd share a "Hot Toddy" recipe from the authors of one of our favorite recipe books "Thug Kitchen" to help our readers continue to live their best life while surviving this Flu season.
2 cups of water
2 bags of black tea
½ cup fresh grapefruit juice (about 1 grapefruit)
2 shots of bourbon
1 tablespoon maple syrup (whatever liquid sweetener you got will do)
2 cinnamon sticks (optional)
"Bring the water to a boil on the stove with a kettle or whatever you use. In a large measuring glass or heat-safe pitcher add the grapefruit juice, bourbon, maple syrup, and cinnamon sticks. When the water is boiling, pour it into the pitcher, add the tea bags, and cover it to keep it warm while the flavors mix. Let the tea steep for 3 minutes. Take out the tea bags and cinnamon sticks and serve that immediately.
Makes 2 drinks or one big cup of comfort"
We paraphrased some of the language that was used in the original recipe but you could visit the original recipe and lots of other cool recipes on their website at https://www.thugkitchen.com/hottoddy
Enjoy and cheers to surviving Flu season.
