Helpful winter storm reminder

When the days are short and nasty, and the evenings long and chilly, just remember:

Put the kettle on. Pour 1 shot of single-malt Scotch whisky into a mug.

Add a generous tablespoon or so of good honey. Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon, and add a bruised slice of fresh ginger root or a couple dashes of powdered ginger.

Fill the rest of the mug with boiling water. Stir, let sit for a minute or two, add something good to read or watch, and sip at your leisure.

It's good for what ails you, if what ails you is a dry scratchy throat, chilly fingers and toes, restless cabin fever, or a great desire to feel cozy.

mmmm....
That sounds brilliant. I've been wanting to get a bottle of scotch for quite a while now, you may have just given me the final necessary push.

Re: mmmm....
I discovered that buying the scotch is a good bike errand. Probably best not to combine the getting and the drinking, though.
