Hot Whiskey

Hot Whiskey

It’s simple, really. Take however much whiskey you’d like, dilute with as much boiling water as you’d like, adding a touch of sugar, lemon and cloves. You need more instructions? Alright, then…

The Summary:

  • Makes one hot whiskey drink, which may well lead to another; if you count kettle boiling time, this’ll take no more than 5 min to prepare

You’ll need:

  • 35ml measure Irish whiskey
  • 125-150ml boiling water plus more for scalding the glass
  • slice of lemon
  • 3-4 whole cloves
  • 1 tsp sugar

You’ll also need:

  • Heatproof glass, preferably with a handle
The Steps:
  • Stick the cloves into the lemon slice.
  • Heat the glass by rinsing out with some boiling water.
  • Add the sugar and boiling water to the glass and stir to dissolve.
  • Add the lemon slice and whiskey, stir to mix, and enjoy.

The Variations:

  • Dilute to your own taste. Add more sugar if you like or use honey to sweeten instead. Other than that, there’s no real need to tinker with such a classic.
