A classic hot toddy
There's nothing better on a wintry day than a sip of a sweet elixir to warm you up. And if it's something peaty and aromatic that might remind you of some of our favorite destinations, all the better! Here's a recipe for a classic drink that some say can cure all that ails you - and if it doesn't, it might just make your burdens seem a tad lighter as it warms you up.
2 ounces of whisky
2 teaspoons of sugar or honey
1 slice of lemon
4 cloves (or a cinnamon stick)
2 cups of boiled water
Fill up a mug with boiling water and set it aside to warm the glass. Pour out the water and add the whisky with the sugar or honey, then top with more hot water and stir. Stud the lemon with the cloves or add the lemon and cinnamon and serve.
While you're drinking your hot toddy, why not contemplate a trip to Ireland or Scotland, where you can visit a distillery and see how whisky is made?
