Lemon Ginger Toddy

I was a bit under the weather last week with a scratchy throat and some sinus yuck going on.  I find that the best remedy for me is some Cold-Eeze lozenges and a hot toddy (or 3!).


I happened to have some Domaine de Canton on hand.  It’s a French ginger liqueur with cognac that I like to add to all sorts of drinks…martinis, margaritas, gin & tonic…it’s tasty (and versatile) stuff.


I paired it with Tazo Green Ginger tea and some lemon.  Sooooo gooooood!  Here’s the recipe:

8 oz. Water, just shy of boiling
1 Tazo Green Ginger tea bag
1.5 oz. Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
Juice from 1/2 a lemon

-Steep the tea bag in hot water for 5 minutes.  Remove and add in the liqueur and lemon.  Give it a quick stir and enjoy!


I’m not sure if it is the tea, the lemon, or the slight alcohol buzz, but this toddy always makes me feel better.
