Recipe Of The Day: Hot Toddy

Just in time before the cold season leaves us comes this incredibly easy to make Hot Toddy Recipe which is great for those days where you think your starting to catch a cold or already may have a cold (or just want to get warm and saucy at the same time.) 
This recipe calls for a few shots of Whisky and a diced up Habanero Pepper to add some real heat at the end.
Many of you may not actually know what  Hot Toddy is, no its not something that Jay Z and Usher made up for that lame dance song they had in 2010. It is a drink that was enjoyed usually by elders who felt the need to warm up right before going out into the cold wet conditions they lived in or before going to bed.

1.3 litres (2 pints) milk
4 tablespoons malt powder
3 tablespoons sugar
1 Habanero Pepper (deseeded and diced fine) for garnish
3, 4 or 6 shots whisky
2 vanilla pods, scored and the seeds scraped out

Heat up the milk and whisk in the malt, sugar to taste, whisky, vanilla seeds and pods.
Whisk until thoroughly mixed.
If you have a cappuccino frother, use it up to make some wonderfully thick frothy foam at the top to complete this great drink.
Garnish with Habanero

Recipe adapted from Jamie Oliver’s 2003 Hot Toddy Recipe.
