Spiced Sagittarius (Hot Toddy)
Energetic Alignment: Comfort, Purification, Vibration Raising, Truth, Protection
Inspired by the new moon in Sagittarius, this spicy, grounding hot toddy is exactly the beverage to comfort, protect, and inspire you during Sagittarius New Moon & Solar Eclipse. Especially for those of us in Northern Hemisphere who may be dealing with cold weather right now, this is just the beverage to cozy up to! With energizing, optimistic spices like clove, nutmeg, and allspice to raise your vibration, with ancient honey and grain-based whiskey to ground and invite wisdom, and energizing lemon and ginger – this hot toddy is packed purifying, heightening, and grounding alignments to help you seize the energetic benefits of this eclipse, while still being protected. Drink this alcohol free for a nice winter honey tea, or add whiskey and/or allspice liqueur.
