Hot toddy recipes are wonderful additions to your winter herbal cocktail lineup. Whether you are planning a holiday party video call this year or you’re cozied around a fire with your family, we hope you make (or share!) this cranberry hot toddy recipe.
The ingredients feature warming herbs, which do more than create a little heat in your body during this cold weather season. Warming herbs like clove (Syzygium aromaticum), cinnamon (Cinnamomum spp.), and ginger (Zingiber officinale) are also wonderfully supportive for digestive health. Our digestion is vital to our health no matter the time of year, but especially in the winter months when we’re eating heavier foods.
