If you enjoy a Hot Toddy then you better check this boozy tea time cocktail Just a slight twist to change up a classic but still oh so delicious!

Happy hour is now served at tea time. Or maybe tea time is now happy hour? Either way, this twist on a a Hot Toddy is a welcoming cocktail to warm you up during these cold winter months.
You know what else is a good reason for happy hour? Whole30 is over!! You better believe I ate those churro waffles I saved from the brunch I couldn’t enjoy this past weekend. And I may be checking out a fried chicken place for lunch today. I promise I’m not diving off the deep end. Mostly because I’m afraid how my body will respond.
Other than what I’ve mentioned the rest of our meals for the week remain Whole30 compliant. We have been enjoying the recipes we’ve found and figured we will just keep working them in. But then there’s the Super Bowl… I swear I’m going to attempt to keep up these good habits I’ve maintained for the last 30 days.
Everyone kept asking me if I was excited for it to be over, but honestly it was not much of a struggle. Breakfast was a bit challenging at times when I got sick of eggs and I had the occasional pang for dessert (mostly when it was sitting right in front of me) but for the most part everything we ate was delicious and therefore didn’t leave much room for complaining. I also posted a roundup of all our favorite Whole30 recipes. But I digress.
There’s a bit more to talk about for this cocktail! In order to help you make this for yourself, I teamed up with Nielsen-Massey to host a giveaway for a bottle of their orange extract. Use the Rafflecopter widget located at the end of this post to enter.
