hot toddies

hot toddies have got us through the winter. lovely hubby and i are somewhat addicted to our nightly ritual
We owe thanks to Nigel Slater's hot toddy recipe which is so delicious and smooth:
Put 1tsp of honey and a measure of whisky in a mug or heatproof glass. Add two cloves and half a cinnamon stick then top up with just-off-the-boil water. Stir in a slice of lemon and just enough lemon juice to balance the sweetness of the honey. Drink as soon as it doesn't burn your lips.


  1. I can vouch that his recipe has kept us going through this winter. medicinal or not, the comfort factor at the end of an evening is sensational.


thank you. i love your comments x
