I have a horrible cold, and so tonight, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and make my first ever Hot Toddy. It really does taste rather horrid, but I think that if it were made without the Scotch, it would be quite palatable!

In any case, if you are in the same position as I, afflicted with a nasty cold or flu, you may wish to try this one. Make it, get into bed, sip, and then…sleep!
