Hot Toddy!

Ring in the new,
Ring out the old, 
A steaming hot toddy
Will cure a bad cold!

1 teaspoon sugar
Small piece of Cinnamon
Slices of Lemon garnished with Cloves
1 1/2oz. Rye or Brandy
Boiling Water

Put a spoon of sugar in an Old-Fashioned glass; dissolve it with a little hot water, and leave spoon in glass. Add the cinnamon, lemon, and whiskey and fill the glass nearly full with piping hot water. Stir gently. Grate a little nutmeg on top and serve.
