Hot Cinnamon Toddy

Say hello to winter with this hot cinnamon toddy…
Hot Cinnamon Toddy (1)

Sometimes you just need something that will warm your soul.  This is the drink for that occasion.

When I was a kid I used to sneak drinks of my parents liquor (shhh don’t tell on me.) My favorite part was the way it made my belly warm. I distinctly remember that feeling and how much I loved it.

This drink does the same thing but this time I’m actually legal to drink.  I used my favorite cinnamon tea,Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice.  If you can’t find it in your local store I would recommend buying it online. It is seriously the best cinnamon tea you will ever have.

Also, since it’s the boozy days of Christmas I had to add a little booze.  I added a little splash of bourbon. You should do the same.

    I definitely tried my parents’ liquor as a kid and I definitely hated it LOL! But this toddy? Totally instant love.

    Mmm this sounds perfect to warm up on a cold day. I don’t have bourbon but I think whiskey would do the trick ;)
