This medicinal drink is the perfect thing if you have a cough, sore throat, the flu, a cold, or general malaise. It will cure most sore throat issues directly. And rest assured that if it doesn't, you won't care!
- 3 tablespoons (give or take) of honey
- 4 ounces brandy, rum, or whiskey
- juice from 1/2 half fresh lemon
Heat the glass in the microwave for about 45 to 60 seconds. Watch the glass closely! It will boil over very quickly once it heats up. When the liquid has just started to boil, pull it out, juice the half-lemon into your hot toddy, and drink it immediately. You have to drink around the whole cloves anyhow, so don't worry about the lemon seeds.
If you don't have access to a microwave, you can simply heat the honey, brandy, and spices on the stovetop, and then add them to the glass... and proceed with adding the lemon.
