Art Day + Hot Toddy recipe

I am home with a sick Greta today.  
That means cuddle time, drawing time, snack time, nose wiping, and nap time.  
Nap time = art time for this mama.  
This is just a sneak preview of the current watercolor. 
This is the chai I have been loving lately.  It pairs well with almond milk and honey.  
Speaking of tea, I have a new recipe we tried out this past weekend.  Introducing, the Mommy’s Medley Hot Toddy:
Start by using freshly filtered cold water, and bring it to near boiling.  Remove from the heat just before boiling – when you start to hear it bubbling away the water is hot enough.  

Place 1 bag of lemon ginger herbal tea in a cup.  I used the brand Stash, but really any citrusy or ginger tea will work. 

Next, add 1 shot ( ~ 1 oz.) of bourbon per cup – I used Evan Williams Honey Reserve.  

Add a drizzle of honey and one cinnamon stick

Pour hot water into cup.  Mix well. 
Allow tea to steep 3 to 5 minutes.  

Enjoy on a cold, rainy night, as we did.

  1. Love your recipes Chelsea! I discovered about a year ago, that if you accidently drop a chai tea bag into your oatmeal while your cooking it, you won't be disappointed.

  2. Thank you! I love the idea of using chai tea with oatmeal and will have to try it next time. I was looking at your etsy shop yesterday and am loving the new bags you are making!
