    Serves: 1 

    • 8 whole cloves
    • 1 thick slice of lemon
    • 1 tablespoon white sugar
    • 3/4 cup boiling water
    • 45ml Irish whiskey

    Preparation:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Press cloves into the peel of the lemon slice all the way around. Set aside. Measure the sugar into a wine glass. Place a metal spoon into the glass with the curved side facing upwards. Pour the boiling water over the back of the spoon. This will keep your wine glass from shattering. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Pour in the whiskey and add the lemon slice. Let steep for about 1 minute before drinking.

    I had this when I was under the weather in Dublin and it really seems to work. I tried this recipe at home when I had an ear infection and after a couple of glasses, at least I wasn't in pain anymore, and I actually did feel better in the morning. I'm firmly in the leave out the sugar camp of the Hot Irish Whiskey devotees, and I also add some extra lemon juice. Thanks!  -  02 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
