Slowly, ever so slowly, we are approaching spring. But hey, it’s still cold out. I’m praying we can get to the promised land without another snow storm, but you already know how Mother Nature gets down. It’s entirely possible. Don’t want to catch a cold? Or recover from one? Our actual mothers would tell us to drink hot lemonade with honey. And that’s delicious. I made it a habit ever since I can remember! Sooooo, you already know my shenanigans, and I will add alcohol to whatever I can. No exception here. There is absolutely nothing wrong with winter proofing yourself while having a little fun on the weekends. The ingredients of this cocktail are minimal, the taste is optimal, so let’s have a drink together.
What you’ll need:
- 2 oz Absolut Vanilla
- 3 oz hot water
- 1 oz honey syrup
- 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
To make the honey syrup, heat 4 oz of honey with 4 oz of water in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Stir until the honey is dissolved. Allow to cool, or in this case, you can use it while it’s still warm.
Add all ingredients to a mug or a Mason Jar. Stir well. Garnish with a slice of lemon, and drink while it’s still hot!
