Use a good Highland single malt Scotch whisky. The Dalmore 12 or Macallan 12 are great here, though any non-peaty, non-smoky Highland Scotch malt whisky will work fine.

Air Jordan 2017 Casual Shoes


2 ounces Highland Scotch whisky

1 to 3 ounces boiling water

1/2-ounce lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey (or brown sugar)

3 drops Angostura bitters

1 slice lemon, studded with cloves

A sprinkle of ground nutmeg


Into a heatproof glass or large coffee mug, put the sugar, bitters, lemon juice, and clove-studded lemon slice. Add the whisky, pour in one third of the boiling water, and stir gently until the honey or sugar dissolves; add more boiling water to bring it back up to temperature, and fill your cup to the desired level. Dust lightly with nutmeg, and sip lovingly. It is delicious, and should help you feel better.
