February is the season of cold outdoors, which can cause colds indoors as well. Your Sunrise Ginger Toddy would do the trick by breaking up that chest cold, relieving those sniffles, and getting you back out the door again. Ginger root is used today to provide relief for symptoms of many gastrointestinal problems including motion sickness, dizziness, nausea, heartburn, and gas. It can also relieve arthritis pain, menstrual discomfort, headaches, fevers from flu and colds and sore throats.
Although it is not best to drink whiskey if you are nauseated or experience loss of appetite, your own Kentucky bourbon should battle most cold and cough symptoms.
Once heated and mixed, this Ginger Toddy treat will express dramatic aroma and taste, sure to ease the ill or relax the weary. Unwind with friends by making your very own Sunrise Ginger rum, bourbon or other mixed drink.
