I'm snowed in with no cold medicine and this recipe was an INSTANT relief for a sore throat and stuffy sinuses. I used two teaspoons of lemon juice (fresh squeezed) instead of one. Perfect!

A sinus infection (or something) has quickly set in and zapped me. Came home from work and looked up this. Relief! Due to supplies on hand, I had to sub brandy for whiskey and orange for lemon, but this is making me feel better than I have all day.

Also have to add, it's not supposed to be watered down. You're supposed to warm the whiskey, mix in a tablespoon of honey, a squeeze of lemon and knock it back as fast as you can, it's a Hot Toddy not a cocktail.
