Hot Toddy

Hot Toddy's can be really hit and miss. At best they are a soothing kick-up the arse for colds and at worse they are an over-spiced lukewarm horror with terrible whiskey. My dad made the best and my mum has now taken over the helm. When I lost my voice and felt near death with the worst cold ever whilst in early labour with Jim she made me one of these and I felt better than I had done in months.

My husband annoyingly always says 'how much lemon'. THERE IS NO LEMON IN A HOT TODDY YOU WALLY.

Grate of nutmeg
A couple of cloves (optional)

2. Put in the honey and spices
