Strong-Ass Ginger Toddy

If you have a cold, and you drink a couple of these, you will soon feel much better.
  • Fill a coffeecup about 1/3 full of brandy. (Delicious, yet moderately priced, Presidente Mexican brandy is an excellent choice.)
  • Add 2-3 T of honey.
  • Add 5-15 slices of fresh ginger.
  • Add a squirt or two of lemon juice (about 2 slices worth).
  • Add enough water to fill the cup to about an inch below the top.
Heat the above in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, then top it off with boiling water and enjoy. Add more lemon, honey, or brandy to taste.

I think the microwaving burns off at least a little bit of the alcohol.
