A hot drink to help fight the cold and the flu

Probably right now, you are a bit sick like me; you have the flu or a big cold. When we are a bit groggy: runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, chilliness and tiredness, the whole shabang, i am making a great concoction that we call a Ponce. This drink is very effective for the blues of the long winter nights. Be sure you are making it right before going to sleep, because, you will sleep like a baby !
Here is the recipe.

Ingredients
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon of honey
Juice of 1 lemon
Pinch of ground cloves
Pinch of cinnamon
3 oz. of Gin or Vodka
How to make it
1. Put all the ingredients in a saucepan
2. Let simmer until it boils
3. Put in a cup
15 minutes to make
Serves 1

Even if i am a bit tired of coughing and sneezing all the time, i managed to do another painting today. I guess the hot drink inspired me.
