Cold Remedy Drink – Hot Orange Spice Beverage

cold remedy hot orange drink recipe

The first months of a year very often bring a cold into my life. It’s not the most pleasant of the situations, but it is what it is.

This year, I was trying my best to fight the cold without pills, as naturally as possible. After searching in the deep waters of the internet a little bit, I found this lovely recipe that has been designed especially for fighting the cold or flu.

And it indeed made me feel a lot better.

The beverage is full of vitamin C, it contains raw honey with its antibacterial properties and there a few lovely spices to make you feel beautifully warm inside. It tastes very yummy as well. I highly recommend it.

Hot Toddy (And A Free Desktop Background Too)


Today, I was waking up deciding what to prepare for my blog – whether it would be the long planned soft pretzels recipe, or a lovely beverage called hot toddy.

One look outside the window made it all perfectly clear (because yes, in my strange world the weather and light is everything).

The sun was shining extremely bright. As if begging to send some of its rays through a hot, sweet, and delicious cup, helping to make the drink that’s inside look as magical, warming, and soothing as it in fact really is.

So, the Hot Toddy it is!

An efficient cold-healing potion, and a relaxer par excellence.

As somebody once said: “Hot Toddy has it all – the vitamin C for health, the honey to soothe, the alcohol to numb.”

And I drank it …in the morning …and don’t even have a cold … and yes, I had a great day…
