LIDL Recipes - Hot WhiskeyPlay

Makes 1

 

50ml Irish whiskey

1 tsp brown sugar (or 1 tsp honey)

1 thick slice of lemon

4 cloves

 

1      Fill a glass or mug with near-boiling water to warm it, emptying it after a minute. Pour the whiskey into the glass and add the sugar (or honey if you’re fighting a cold).

2      Cut the lemon slice in half and remove any pips. Squeeze the juice from one half of the slice into the glass.

3      Stud the white pith of the remaining half-slice of lemon with cloves, pushing them in fully so they won’t float out.

4      Fill the glass almost to the brim with boiling water. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Gently drop the clove-studded lemon in, taking care not to splash any of the hot whiskey.
