3. Hot Toddy

While the name ‘hot toddy’ has come to mean any hot, alcoholic beverage served before bed, the traditional Scottish recipe involves pouring boiling water into a shot of a whisky, stirring in honey or sugar, and adding half a slice of lemon and a cinnamon stick for flavor. Drinking a hot toddy before bed is traditionally thought to help clear head colds and prevent flu during the winter, but whether you’re feeling sick or not, this delicious beverage is soothing and relaxing, certainly one of the best drinks before bed during the cold months.
