Take Your Medicine :-)

I’m at home nursing a flu with green tea and honey.  Since living in Europe I’ve discovered the medicinal qualities of a Hot Toddy (which for me means forgetting how miserable the flu has me feeling after a few mugs and strangely makes me break out into song until I fall asleep).  

I’m going to make this cocktail called the Medicine Man to see what effect it has on me in comparison for purely medicinal purposes  😀

Cocktail shaker and strainer required…


  • Ice
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 4 sage leaves, divided
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add white rum, lemon juice, maple syrup, paprika, and 3 sage leaves. Shake well for 30 seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with final sage leaf.

To Your Health!
