H is for Hot Toddy

Hi everyone,

It’s turned very chilly here in Oxford this weekend. This afternoon we went for a walk to the local duck pond, armed with bread. Half an hour is more than enough time outside in the cold weather!

So, this evening I’m making warming mugs of hot toddy for us to enjoy while snuggled on the sofa. My recipe is very simple and great for people, like me, who like to cheat or take shortcuts!

Hot toddy
Serves 2

Put a measure of whisky, a teaspoon of honey, two or three cloves, a dash of lemon juice, and a slice of lemon in two small mugs. Top up with freshly boiled water.

Note: don’t drink this if you have to drive, or if you are taking prescribed medication!
