Recipe courtesy of Pizzeria Venturi
1–1½ ounces bourbon whiskey
1 teaspoon honey
3 drops Angostura bitters
4 ounces hot water
1 lemon wedge
3 whole cloves
Nutmeg, freshly grated
Preheat a mug by filling it with hot water. Place the bourbon, honey, bitters and about 1 ounce of hot water in a double shaker or whisk together in a small bowl to fully dissolve the honey. Stud the lemon wedge with cloves, set aside.
Empty the preheated mug, fill with the honey bourbon mix and add the remaining 3 ounces of hot water. Top with the clove-studded lemon wedge and grate the nutmeg over the center of the mug. Serve hot.
