Ours is whiskey, hot water, sugar, couple of cloves and slice of lemon. Mmmm, what a great idea (also helpful for staving off a cold!)

honey, boiling water and whisky here drunk while feet are soaking in a basin with mustard. Yours sounds lovely bosch.

Bosch, this is how I make one too. The cloves are really warming. I also find that a cup of cocoa made with milk and unsweetened cocoa but no sugar does wonders.

Hot water, honey, whisky and lemon. Excellent for coughs. We keep a bottle of whisky in the cupboard specially for them.
