Earl Grey Hot Toddy #FoodieExtravaganza


Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays or cook and bake together with the same ingredient or theme each month.

This month, and to kick off our 2021 series, I am hosting this month's #FoodieExtravaganza. I shared with the group: "January is National Hot Tea Month. Let's share recipes for tea drinks, something you would serve at a tea party, or anything that uses hot tea for cooking (tea-poached fish, anyone?!). This topic is wide open! Be creative." 

Here's the hot tea celebration line-up...

Ingredients makes 2 drinks
  • 2 Tablespoons Earl Grey tea loose leaf tea
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 3 ounces whisky or bourbon, divided
  • freshly squeezed juice from 2 organic lemons (I used Meyer lemons)
  • 2 Tablespoons honey (less if you prefer it less sweet)
  • also needed: tea pot with strainer

Procedure 

Put the water in a kettle or saucepan and bring to a boil. Place tea in a mesh strainer and pour water over the leaves. Let tea steep for about 3-5 minutes.

In the bottom of your serving cups, place whisky or bourbon, honey, and lemon juice. Pour in the hot, steeped tea and stir to combine completely and dissolve the honey.


Serve hot.

Next month, Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm is hosting us as we explore dishes that start with a can. Stay tuned...
