Happy Friday everyone!
I had a hectic week and I'm so glad for it to almost be over. I'm working on some exciting projects this weekend and can't wait to get to it. Am I the only one that gets excited about work? lol.
Anyways, it's been a little cold and dreary here, and with all this stress I really needed to take a chill pill. That's why I put together this Earl Grey Lavender Hot Toddy. I took the simple ingredients in a classic toddy and combined them with the soothing and calming effects of lavender and some much needed tea to maximize your buzz and relaxation. It is also just a super simple subsitute, because instead of adding hot water to top, we're adding freshly brewed earl grey tea.
It's fun to think about all the different ways you can infuse this drink with other flavors and teas to make so many variations. If you have a favorite tea besides earl grey, try that. Let me know how it turns out. I'd love to hear about how you like your hot toddy! Do you add something fun and different? Herbs? Special Honey? A different spirit?
Whip up one of these, kick your feet up, put a mask on, and some cucumbers over those eyes, it's FRIYAY!
