This will be a quickie because I am sickie.
Ya like that? Maybe I’ll start doing puns next. Nah, I’ll leave that to Harto.
Where was I? Sorry, brain is foggy from congestion and cold medicine.
Yes, right, I am sick. And I therefore have an actual excuse to drink whiskey. Rock the fuck on. I found a recipe on Pinterest for a hot toddy.
Except Joanna Goddard is a lot cuter when she is sick than I am when I am sick. You don’t have to take my word for it.
Also, I read the recipe wrong, so instead of putting a little bit of whiskey, honey, and lemon in a mug and then pouring hot water over it, like you should do, I mixed equal parts of whiskey, honey, and lemon and then microwaved it.
I have a lot of experience microwaving honey and lemon. You shouldn’t worry.
You maybe should worry that I used the half lemon left over from the blackhead remover experiment. And also that I was almost out of honey because apparently you use honey in every at-home beauty thing ever, like the miracle mask, the afore-mentioned DIY body-sugaring, and the also afore-mentioned blackhead remover. Except this time, I’m actually supposed to ingest it. HA.
Also, in case you were wondering, half a lemon is not enough. You may have to supplement. But it’s ok because it says “real” on the bottle.
While you are microwaving your hot toddy, be sure to get distracted and take pictures of your dog. You might have to do weird things to get her to sit still long enough for a picture, like make her a piece of toast and then feed it to her little bits at a time.
And then you may forget that you should probably be watching your hot toddy in the microwave, lest it boil and make a huge– oh hell.
Anyway, it tasted pretty awesome, despite lack of boiling water, probably because I just really like whiskey anyway, so yeah, take this review as you will. I did not get better from drinking it. But I certainly did not get worse.
