Welp, it’s January and it’s entirely gloom and doom outside.

Am I surprised? No. Over it? Yes.

Like all Portlanders, I suffer through the months of overcast skies because spring, summer, and fall are totally worth it here.

I can’t wait for spring to be here – this year I’m going to try my hand at gardening! I’ve been composting for a few weeks so we’ll see how that turns out. Anyone have some good composting tips for me?

In the mean time, I really need to work hard at creating more… used lemons… so I should probably go make myself a Hot Toddy.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 4 lemons - divided
  • 18 whole cloves
  • 6 teaspoons honey
  • 6 ounces quality rum
  • 6 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 whole nutmeg

Instructions

  • Fill the KitchenAid® Electric Kettle with 1 ½ cups fresh water. Place the kettle on the stand and flip the toggle switch to the ON position.
  • Cut three of the lemons in half and cut the fourth into slices. Halve three of the slices to make six half-circles. Stud each half slice with three whole cloves.
  • Set out six heat-safe glasses. Squeeze the juice from half a lemon into each of the glasses, then top the lemon juice with one teaspoon of honey and an ounce of
    rum.
  • Once the Electric Kettle has finished boiling and the toggle switch returns to the OFF position, pour ¼ cup of freshly boiled water into each glass. Stir until the honey has dissolved.
  • Garnish each glass with a clove-studded lemon slice and a cinnamon stick. Grate fresh nutmeg over the top. Serve immediately.
