Brrrrr, is it cold out here? Great for a warming up for the night or when you’re feeling under the weather, you can use any kind of whiskey you like in this hot and comforting classic Hot Toddy recipe.
Fill a mug with boiling water and let stand for a minute or two to warm
Meanwhile, stick the cloves into the lemon twist and set aside
Empty the mug and fill about halfway with fresh boiling water
Add the sugar and stir to dissolve
Add the prepared lemon twist and stir
Add the lemon juice and whiskey, and stir again
