Hot Toddy

When you have a cold and/or a sore throat, a hot toddy is the best cure! And if you’re not sick but it’s a cold winter night it’s also the way to go.

All you need is bourbon, a big squeeze of honey, 1/2 of a lemon. Then mix and add hot water.

As you can see in the photo my husband’s is slightly darker.  He felt I didn’t put enough bourbon… I’ll let you all decide what’s “enough”.


Spiked Nutella Hot Chocolate

I’m not a big lover of chocolate in general but on a cold winter day, after shoveling some snow a cup of hot chocolate will soothe the soul. I saw a few recipes for nutella hot chocolate on pinterest and knew that my husband would love it. So, I did my research and came up with my own version, one that adults can enjoy!  Light a fire and enjoy.



nutellaRoughly 4 TBSP of Nutella

1 1/2 TBSP of cocoa powder (I used Hersheys)

2 cups of milk

1/4-1/2 cup of Godiva chocolate liqueur

A pinch of salt

Don’t forget the whip cream to top it all off!


Heat up all ingredients except for the liqueur in a pot on the stove. Whisk together until smooth and completely hot. Don’t let it come to a roaring boil. Add the liquor at the end and cook long enough just for everything to heat up again. Finish with a pinch of salt and pour in your mugs. Top with whip cream and warm up!
