AIP Hot Toddy

I don’t know if it’s just this neck of the woods, but allergies seem to be running crazy! Like, every other person I talk to is dealing with sneezing fits and scratchy throats. Including me.

Enter the Hot Toddy! Because a sore throats deserves a little somethin’ to soothe it, and you deserve a little somethin’ in the process.

Now, the traditional “somethin’” was whiskey, which isn’t the case here. That ain’t my jam. Plus, it ain’t AIP or good for the gut. So we’ve swapped it with some fresh, unsweetened apple juice. I know…apple juice instead of whiskey? I hear you. Different flavor profile and all that. But just go with me, because it tastes fantastic!

Here’s the how-to for the Toddy….I hope you curl up with a warm cup and enjoy!
