Recipe: Hot Irish Whiskey

My best friend who just happens to be Irish made this drink for me one cold night in Chicago and since then, I have been hooked Warning: it is very potent, just one of these will warm you up and basically make you good for nothing afterwards - what a treat It is super to drink at night if you have a sore throat. My friend said this is what the Irish drink if they dont feel good but dont wait until you have a cold to try this recipe

Hot Irish Whiskey Ingredients

  • 8 whole cloves

  • 1 (1/4 inch thick) slice of lemon

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • cup boiling water

  • 1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger Irish whiskey

How to Make Hot Irish Whiskey

  1. Press cloves into the peel of the lemon slice all the way around. Set aside. Measure the sugar into a wine glass. Place a metal spoon into the glass with the curved side facing upwards. Pour the boiling water over the back of the spoon. This will keep your wine glass from shattering. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Pour in the whiskey and add the lemon slice. Let steep for about 1 minute before drinking.

Hot Irish Whiskey Reviews

  • I had this when I was under the weather in Dublin and it really seems to work. I tried this recipe at home when I had an ear infection and after a couple of glasses, at least I wasnt in pain anymore, and I actually did feel better in the morning. Im firmly in the leave out the sugar camp of the Hot Irish Whiskey devotees, and I also add some extra lemon juice. Thanks

  • Im mixed on this one. I really liked it & then I thought it tastes like lemon water. After a couple who cares?

  • Im feeling absolutely crummy today and indulged in a little alcohol (I dont drink much anymore only because it messes with my blood sugars) in this drink because I just need to zone out and try to feel better. This was very good, most soothing and just what I needed. NOTE: I did not use sugar, I used one teaspoon organic honey.

  • Very tasty.These will definately sneak up on you.

  • We went on a trip to Ireland last year and were treated to this drink by one of the locals. This is exactly how it was done right down to the spoon so, on authenticity alone, the recipe is perfect. They really are delicious and oh so comforting on a cold evening. Thanks for putting this out there.

  • Yes, this does the trick every time. I use honey instead of sugar. But, watch with these Theyre too good You might find yourself taking two sick days and finishing a liter of Jamesons (not that this happened to me ;-)

  • I thought the cloves might taste too strong, but they dont. A lovely drink.

  • Nice and simple. My husband enjoyed it as much as I did. I may try this with a bit less auger next time but overall very pleased

  • Forget thera-flu, this cocktail is the REAL DEAL Slinte

  • I llearned to make this in Ireland. Same recipe. Delicious
