Make mine a Hot Port…heavy on the cloves…and the Port!

I’ve been a bundle of snifflin, sweaty, phlegm (hate that word!) hacking, limbs-like-lead, moanin groanin joy since Saturday afternoon!  Who’s with me??? I know I can’t be alone in this bliss!  I’m on anti-biotics and I know that by tomorrow I’ll feel tonnes better but right now…it’s shite!

Saturday morning I was out with my Mum, sister and nieces (my Wonderful  Women!) doing a little Christmas shopping and having our annual Christmas lunch.  Spending time with my Wonderful Women is really important to me – they listen, they advise, tell me I’m nuts, I’m brilliant or I’m okay especially at those times when I’m not really sure what I am.  When I get overwhelmed, one of my not-so-positive traits would be to retreat inwards and pull back on communication – they know just how to kick me back in gear.  And I’m lucky enough to know they are there…always.

Anyway…I wasn’t feeling the Mae West so I treated myself to some nice Port…The really nice kind…so when I got home…got into my jammies…made a rather large (really large) Hot Port!! #Yummilicious 😍 That got me well on the road to recovery!  Here’s my very simple and delicious version:

½ glass of port (size of glass depends on how much hot port you want to drink! 😊)

Same measure of very hot water (as hot as you’d use for tea)

½ tablespoon honey (if you don’t like it too sweet, you can vary this but it is a great healer so I increase value by using Manuka)

1 thick slice of lemon

1 tablespoon of whole cloves

*

Boil the water.  Pierce lemon slice with whole cloves.

Once water is boiling, add to a warm mug and stir in honey.

Add the port and stir. Gently drop in the clove-studded lemon slice.  Let it diffuse and the flavours mingle for a few moments then enjoy!

hot+port+2

I haven’t yet had a hot whiskey I really enjoy…anyone got any good recipes???

For anyone in the same boat…sending you get well wishes!!
