Hot Toddy

 The Hot Toddy is the grandfather of hot cocktails. Equally at home or snowbound  vacation as it is on an acclaimed cocktail menu, the Hot Toddy has one job that it takes quite seriously: warming you up.

Yield: 1 Mug

Fill a mug with boiling water and let stand for a minute or two to warm.
Meanwhile, stick the cloves into the lemon twist and set aside.
Empty the mug and fill about halfway with fresh boiling water.
Add the sugar and stir to dissolve.
Add the prepared lemon twist and stir.
Add the lemon juice and whiskey, and stir again.
