This recipe is the perfect winter warmer-upper. A hot whiskey is a traditional 'cure-all' for those seasonal sniffles but it’s also a delicious digestif or a night cap (drink before bed).
A good Irish whiskey (Jameson or Powers is ideal!)
A heat proof glass
2 teaspoons sugar
Slice of lemon
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Fill a kettle to boil hot water.
Place a metal spoon in a glass (will prevent glass from breaking) into the glass to pre-heat it, before emptying it out.
Cut a slice of lemon, remove the pips and stick some cloves into the fruit.
Put a teaspoon of sugar into the glass followed by a shot of Irish whiskey. Give the whiskey and sugar mixture a bit of a stir and try to dissolve the lumps.
Add boiling water and then stir.
Add the lemon and additional cloves (if desired) to the mix.
Wrap a wee' napkin around the glass, so you don’t scald yourself.
