Turmeric Hot Toddy

Turmeric Hot Toddy

The second Christmas was over, I got sick. It’s kinda weird how that happens. Like…your body pushes through…. you get things done and the second it’s all over…the second your guests leave… BAM.



A year ago, I saw Heidi’s recipe for turmeric tea and I’ve been making it ever since. It’s a nice afternoon pick-me-up. It cures the 3PM sugar cravings I have at work. It also introduced me to the wonders of turmeric and I’m hooked now. Who would have thought?

In my brain, toddies have either bourbon or gin in them. But I thought I’d try this toddy with Reposado Patron Tequila to shake things up a bit. Glad I did because we have a winner, folks. This hot toddy tastes like a syrupy warm smoky margarita. Which is kinda weird to think about but it works incredibly well on a cold day.


  • 1 heaping tablespoon turmeric honey (recipe below)
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 6 oz. hot water
  • 2 oz. Reposado Patrón Tequila
