How It’s New York:
How It’s Irish:

Oh do you feel a cold coming on?

lemon has to be firm, not mushy

cloves could choke you

scald the cup, so you don’t lose heat
sugar on bottom, hot water melts the sugar, shot of whiskey

it’s the hot

very relaxing

opens the pores, sweat out

it’s relaxing, could be hennessy, bourbon, or just hot hennessy

it’s the whiskey
but also the sugar and the lemon
cloves, soothing

main thing is relaxing
go to bed

or a week in the sun

does stemware matter?

mention dee…michelle …kelly
