Hot whiskyPosted: 3 December 2011
Hot whisky made as follows, does wonders relieving the symptoms of common cold , as it is a mixture of pain killing (from cloves), calming (from alcohol), soothing (hot water and honey) and a bit of vitamin C (from lemon) substances.
Ingredients: Any brand of whisky, ¼ cup. Hot water, ¼ cup. Lime or lemon, 1 slice. Cloves, 6-7. Sugar, or honey, 2 tea spoon.
Method: Put sugar or honey in your favourite glass, add whisky, and stir. 2. Rinse a lime or lemon, and take a fairly thick slice from the middle. Make sure you remove the pipes. 3. Stick a clove in each segment of the lemon slice. 4.Gently pour hot water into glass over whisky/sugar mix. Stir well and drop the cloved slice of lemon into the glass. There you go, drink before it gets cold!
Note: You can certainly change the amount of water and whisky (i.e. More whisky if you are used to alcoholic drinks and less if you are not). Also, bear in mind that if water is boiling hot, it will diminish the calming effect of alcohol, so use a soothing-warm water, but not a too hot one.
