Add the scotch (optional), lemon juice, smoked honey and hot water to a tea cup, and stir.
Garnish with a rosemary sprig, lemon wheel and grated nutmeg.
*Smoked honey: Heat 1 cup of water to a boil, and slowly stir in 2 cups of honey. Heat 1 hardwood charcoal briquette to white-hot temperature over a flame, and submerge it into the honey water. Allow to cool. Remove the briquette, and run the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer. Makes 4‚Ä"6 servings.
