Prep Time: 5 minutes

Preparation:
1.    Fill a kettle to boil hot water.
2.    Place a metal spoon in a glass (will prevent glass from breaking) into the glass to pre-heat it, before emptying it out
3.    Cut a slice of lemon, remove the pips and stick some cloves into the fruit.
4.    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.
5.    Add boiling water and then stir.
6.    Add the lemon and additional cloves (if desired) to the mix.
7.    Wrap a wee napkin around the glass, so you don’t scald yourself.

Enjoy!
