Late fall, early winter getting you down already? That first cold kicked in hard? Some might say the answer is to lay low and get lots of sleep, or drink some hot tea. My answer: the hot toddy.
Here's a recipe I developed for a Find. Eat. Drink. article.
2 tablespoons whisky
2 tablespoons mild honey
3 whole cloves
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup boiling water
1 lemon slice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1) In a mug or cup, mix the whisky, honey, lemon juice together.
2) Add the cloves, slice lemon, and the lemon zest.
3) Finally add the hot water and stir together.
