Hot toddy

*sips*

Ahhhh!

Once again, because I have lots of lovely new friends here on Dreamwidth who might not have seen it, I shall share my recipe for a hot toddy. It soothes the savage breast, warms the cockles of your heart, chases the blues away, and several other clichés having to do with comfort.

DarkEmeralds' Hot Toddy Recipe

Put the kettle on.

Into a mug, place:
  • A generous tablespoon honey*
  • Half a shot of peaty single malt Scotch whisky--or a whole shot, if you're so inclined**
  • A piece of fresh ginger about the size of the first joint of your finger, well crushed with the side of a knife***
  • The juice of half a lemon
Fill the mug with boiling water.
Stir, let steep a couple of minutes, and sip.

Ahhh!

*Lavender honey is sublime in this if you can get it.
**I am partial to Laphroaig. Very partial.
***A shake or two of ground dried ginger will work every bit as well
