Dr. Joey's Hot Toddy's Cold Remedy

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by MARIA MAC

This is my husband's cure for feeling sick, stuffy nose, ache and pains of the flu. It really does work and will make you feel better in no time. Just remember it's for ADULTS ONLY and probably should only be taken at bedtime.

A Nice alternative when those allergy and sinus meds don't seem to be helping! Thanks for this recipe Maria! I have been feeling miserable due to my Sinus and allergy problems. This toddy had me feeling better before I got to the bottom of the cup. I used a mint tea and added a little extra sugar since I like it on the sweet side!
