There’s an old saying that “What whiskey cannot cure there is no cure for.” Since this is the season for colds (I caught a lingering one a few weeks back), a combo of whiskey, lemon (lots of vitamin C!), ginger (an herbal cold remedy), and honey seems just about perfect. While I’m not sure if this cocktail had any effect on my cold, it certainly tasted delicious.

 

Cure-All Cocktail

1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp hot water
3 slices fresh ginger
juice from 1/2 lemon (2 Tbsp)
2 oz whiskey
ice

To make honey syrup, add honey and hot water to a glass and stir until honey has dissolved. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the ginger slices with the lemon juice. Add whiskey, honey syrup, and ice, and shake. Strain into a glass over ice and garnish with a lemon slice.
