Instead of hangover cures this week, here are some drinks that won't freeze you over this winter - from none-other than hangover cure king, Warren "The Doctor" Middleton...
A toddy is a hot drink, traditionally made with whisky, honey and spices (usually cloves). Traditionally a mug is warmed with boiling water before the warming alcoholic drink is poured into it. Less traditional hot toddies use rum or brandy with an orange slice or a slug of reposado tequila and a slice of lime.
Rum punch is probably the best known but brandy also works well when it comes to creating punch as a hot drink. Rum and brandy are sometimes combined in a less traditional recipe and also mix lemon zest, fresh ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and boiling water.
A Christmas favourite, mulled wine is a spicy and sweet concoction and is sold at London pubs and Christmas markets throughout the winter season.
Red wine is mixed with cinnamon sticks, cloves, grated nutmeg, boiling water, sugar and orange and lemon zest to create deliciously warming mulled wine.
Glogg is a Scandinavian version of mulled wine. It is sweeter and stronger. Adding brandy or vodka to the mulled wine gives the brew some kick and throwing in raisins and almonds give an unusual but healthy twist.
Possets are hot, alcoholic, milky drinks which were all the rage back in the Middle Ages. A classic Scottish posset combines milk, oatmeal, salt, honey, grated nutmeg, honey and a large shot of whisky heated until it is nearly boiling.
Sipping egg nog for some is a Christmassy as Saint Nick himself. As hot drinks go, this Christmas concoction is deliciously relaxing. Egg nog combines eggs, sugar syrup, caster sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, mixed spices and milk.
