Whiskey Skin

I know it's been a long time since my last post, but I am currently finishing one of my last semesters of school and the dissertation deadline is approaching.  I've also caught a nasty cold, and have been discovering new recipes to calm my sore throat, coughs, etc.  Here's one that's guaranteed to soothe your throat and stop your coughs for a while.

Makes 1 drink

2 oz hot water (about 130F)
2 oz Irish whiskey
sugar to taste (or honey, or agave nectar, or some sweetener you like)
1 piece lemon peel (without pith)

In a glass, pour the hot water, then add sweetener and lemon peel, top with whiskey.  Stir and enjoy.
