Classic version
  1. Bring the water to a light boil, and pour into a mug. If you are using tea, then boil the water, and add the tea bag.
  2. Add the whiskey or spirits, honey or maple syrup, and lemon juice.
  3. Stir briskly until the honey has dissolved. Discard the tea bag at this point, if you are using tea instead of plain water.
  4. Add the apple cider vinegar, if you are using it.
  5. Garnish with a round lemon slice and cinnamon stick.
  6. Serve hot.
