Perfect Hot Toddy

Ingredients

Lemons (for garnish and for juice)
Whisky or Scotch of your choosing

Preparation

1
Boil enough water to fill half a mug. (Boil a full kettle to make about 5 hot toddys at one time – each drink will require half a cup of hot water)
2
Fill half a mug with hot water and add a green tea bag.
3
Add honey (as much as you like)
4
Add lemon juice (you can squeeze it fresh yourself, or use bottled, won’t make much difference). About a quarter of the cup (so half of the space you have left).
5
Add whisky/scotch (I prefer Jameson, but any brand will do). I usually gauge it as a “four second pour”.
6
Mix everything together well. The honey should dissolve entirely.
7
Slice up the lemon and stick a round of it in there for garnish. Throw in a cinnamon stick at this time too.

About

This is my favorite winter drink. It warms you right up, and gets you nicely buzzed. You can also substitute any of these ingredients for something you prefer (ie: sugar for honey)
