Hot Toddy and Matcha Latte

Inspiring yoga teacher and wellness advocate Bri Manglapus shares with Grounded her Hot Toddy recipe, your new favorite drink to lift your spirits when you feel out of balance. This cup of tea is perfect for winding down in the evenings but still wanting that kick of alcohol to. You can drink this to help soothe your throat when it’s feeling sore.
