Back when I was growing up whiskey was used to treat all sorts of things....sore throat..cough...and cold and flu symptoms...Dad or Mom would put whiskey on a spoon and you would choke it down....sometimes they would mix lemon and sugar with it...can you just imagine today giving our children whiskey?....grown-ups had hot toddy's. It is a nice hot beverage made of the same things and was thought to 'cure' you...
Today it is still a welcome beverage when you are under the weather or as cold as an ice cube...warms you up instantly!
3 wedges of lemons
