Soothe a winter cold

Earlier this week, I returned home from New York with a lot of amazing memories and a raging head cold (flipping air conditioned aeroplanes). Now I’d usually recommend abstaining from alcohol and dosing up on orange juice and lemsip to battle such ailments, however lack of sleep had the cocktail cabinet beckoning and this hot toddy recipe is the perfect winter warmer (plus it is much tastier than artificial lemon remedies)…

50ml whisky
2 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
Slice of lemon
50-100ml hot water (depending on how strong you like it)
1 tsp honey
Squeeze of lemon juice

Pour the whisky and honey into a heatproof mug or glass. Add the cloves, cinnamon stick and hot water. Finish with the lemon slice and juice. Drink warm (and without the lemsip!)
