Here at The Knotty Housewife, I aim to share my passion for rustic living and the empowerment earned by gaining self-sufficiency. There is something to be said about going back to your roots. When you live for a strong purpose, hard work is no longer an option, it's a necessity.

The original and a slightly adapted version
OK, Hot Whiskey for cold winter nights. Yes please! My mom has prepared this hot toddy recipe for my sister, father and I, and for whoever else may be feeling a bit down and fluish in her presence for years and years, well, at least since I could legally drink whisky of course 😉 Try one or two of these and it is sure to help to give you some relief. Jameson Irish Whisky is a smooth Irish Whiskey which lends itself easily to Hot Toddies, Irish Coffee’s and as a sipping Whiskey. I am a bit partial to the Jameson so in my humble opinion.. no… it may not be substituted! I fully believe that it is part of the magic of this recipe!
