#DOTW: Winter Warmer

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:

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!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
