A Hot Toddy

I went with 8 oz hot water, a twist of lemon, 2 cloves, juice of a lemon, a generous teaspoon of honey, a small stick of cinnamon, and 2 oz Talisker; the end result was almost too medicinal, for which I side eye the Talisker, but a definite balm and I’m now off to bed.

Inspired by Nigel Slater, and my friend Zé (I’ll try the Apple juice next time, Zé, I had none in). I also avoided the prevalence of tea in recipes online (thanks due here).
