by Lindzi Ellis


  • Whiskey
  • 1 Lemon
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1 ½ Chilli
  • 7 Cloves
  • Hot water
  • Mug
  • Knife
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather up your supplies, most of these things you'll probably have in your cupboards/ fridge already. I used Jack Daniels, but you can use whatever you want!

    Step 2

    First, slice the lemon and stick a few cloves into the rind.

    Step 3

    Next, chop the chilli into rough quarters, discarding the seeds.

    Step 4

    Use a few cloves to attach about 1/4 chilli to a 2nd lemon slice, I find it sticks best if you first push cloves through chilli then into white pith of lemon

    Step 5

    You will use three slices of lemon per drink, one plain, one chilli and one clove.

    Step 6

    Pour some whiskey into a mug, squeeze in the juice of the plain lemon slice and drop the slice in. Use however much whiskey you want, this is probably 2 (UK) shots worth

    Step 7

    Put the other lemon slices in.

    Step 8

    Next add a couple of spoonfuls of honey, the more whiskey and chilli you use, the more honey you'll want!

    Step 9

    Step 10

    Then top it up with hot water and gently stir to mix.

    Step 11

    Done! The honey and lemon is great for a sore throat, the chilli will warm you up and perk you up and the whiskey will make you feel SO much better! Enjoy! :)
