Vegan Hot Toddy with or without Alcohol

Hot Toddy'sA Hot Toddy always reminds me of my grandparents.

When I was a kid all the adults got together to play cards. I remember all the adults would have their little drinks (they got bigger throughout the day) while playing cards. At times my grandma could sense that I felt left out, so she slipped me small dashes of whiskey in my non-alcohol drink. Yes, the dashes got larger as grandma drank more.

Today, I am not much of a drinker, especially hard alcohol. But I do love a good Hot Toddy. It is warm and comforting plus it brings back fond memories and special moments. PS I drink mine without alcohol.

This recipe can be altered to fit your diet. Use Numi’s Orange Spice white tea or Mighty Leaf Tea Vanilla Bean (black tea) coupled with vanilla and amaretto essence. You can make your Hot Toddy with cream, whole milk or use coconut creamer. As well, opt out on the alcohol or prepare this fabulous drink with your choice of liquor.
