Keep Warm This Winter With a Hot Toddy
Winter can really take it out of you. Whether it's the cold or a cold, my family has always fought either with a hot toddy.
Dewar's has actually been a tradition to more families than mine:
The simple ingredients – hot water, sugar and lemon – were based on what was available and what allowed the then whisky to become more palatable, since sophisticated blending techniques had not yet been discovered. During the late 1890s, a simple toddy recipe appeared on the back of a bottle of Dewar's 'Toddy Whisky,' which was presumably designed to be mixed into a Hot Toddy. Continuing into the 1930s, Dewar's used a number of adverts that referred to the medicinal properties of Scotch whisky, including making a hot toddy to ward off the cold. Today, the Hot Toddy remains an essential recipe to John Dewar & Sons, and is crafted with Dewar's 12 Blended Scotch Whisky and the addition of tea. With a background such as this, and a day to honor the sip, you won't regret crafting your own right at home.
DEWAR'S HOT TODDY
1 part Dewar's 12 Blended Scotch Whisky
3 parts hot water
1 tea bag
Honey and lemon juice, to taste
Coat the bottom of a mug or an Irish coffee glass with honey. Add Dewar's and the lemon juice. On the side, heat water in a tea kettle and add the tea bag to make hot tea. Pour the hot tea into the glass and stir.
Chances are, if Luke Bryan asked to borrow your phone, you'd let him borrow it. Even if he was on stage in front of thousands of people. And chances are, unlike when you let other people borrow your phone, you wouldn't hand it over and say, "don't scroll left!" or "don't look at my texts." This is what happened to a fan when she let Luke borrow her phone on stage during a recent show.
When I think of the 4th of July, I usually think of the John Adams' letter to his wife Abigail, "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America.I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."
