Let's warm up with some Hot Toddy's...Better yet, let's add CBD for the ultimate cold weather relaxation drink!
It's cold, damp, gloomy, & stressful...It's winter time. With just a few simple ingredients you can have yourself a perfect sipping drink that compliments a cold winters day. Hot Toddy's are slow sipping night caps that are also said to help with the frustrating symptoms of colds & coughs. Although you probably don't want to overdo it on the alcohol if you are feeling sick. Your body will need nourishment to heal instead. Alcohol also pairs terribly with over the counter cold meds so it's best to not combine the two.

The holidays are over and its back to reality. But instead of having the holidays to look forward to we are now facing the long winter months. It's cold, It's dark, & it's sometimes a challenge to feel happy and chill with the sun being absent for so much of wintertime. I live in the Chicagoland area so it's not often we see the sun in the winter ,but when we do you bet you'll see us outside in shorts on those sunny occasions.
Now picture this, you put on your favorite comfy outfit, start a warm fire, and make a soothing CBD hot toddy. CBD is known for aiding anxiety, sleep issues, pain, inflammation, & more. There are also studies showing that CBD may help the dreaded hangover, incase you feel like overindulging on hot toddy's.
When making your hot toddy please note that instead of whiskey you may also use brandy or dark/spiced rum. You may have to tinker with the lemon juice and honey ratios to best fit your taste buds. A lil extra dash of lemon or honey can really change the sweetness or tartness of your drink. Now, let's get mixin and relaxin!
CBD Hot Toddy
¾ cup water
1 ½ ounces whiskey
2 to 3 teaspoons SunKissed Greenz CBD honey, to taste
2 to 3 teaspoons lemon juice, to taste
1 lemon slice
1 cinnamon stick (optional, for garnish)
In a teapot or saucepan, bring the water to a simmer. Pour the hot water into a mug.
Add the whiskey, 2 teaspoons honey and 2 teaspoon lemon juice. Stir until the honey has disappeared into the hot water. Taste, and add 1 teaspoon honey for more sweetness, and/or 1 teaspoon more lemon juice for more tart. This is a taste preference.
For a smaller CBD dose substitute some of your CBD honey for regular honey. You may also use regular honey for a non CBD infused drink. Pro tip: Our water soluble CBD is not flavored and goes in ALL drinks.
Garnish with a lemon slice and cinnamon stick.
Relax, Unwind, & Enjoy!
This recipe yields one CBD hot toddy and takes about 10 minutes in prep time.
