With winter well and properly underway we are craving something warm and comforting – and something that will help sooth runny noses and stuffy chests. A boozy Hot Toddy with a South African twist is just the answer!
We are off to the (freezing) Underberg for the long weekend, and I'm thinking Hot Toddy will be on the menu :)
Rooibos Hot Toddy
2 Tbls Whiskey
4 or 6 slices ginger (R2 coin size)
1 Tbls lemon zest
1 Cup water
1 Rooibos tea bag
1 Tbls honey (or more if you like it sweeter)
1 Tbls lemon juice
How to make it
Divide the lemon zest and ginger between two glasses. Top with Whiskey (1 Tbls per glass) and allow to infuse while you prepare the tea.
Bring the water and tea bag to the boil.
Once it’s boiling, remove the teabag and add the honey. Stir until the honey has melted.
Pour the hot tea into the whiskey and add the fresh lemon juice (1/2 of each per glass).
