Hot Whiskey Sling

This past weekend, I had a sinus infection. All of my sinus infections run the same course: 2 days of sore throat followed by 3 (or so) days of congestion. It’s a grand time (not). The moment I mentioned my sore throat for the first time, Bob offered a hot whiskey sling. Tastes good, soothes the throat, and is all natural. Yes, please. Feel free to bookmark this for your next sore throat/cold/cough. You can thank us later.


You’ll need:

  • 1 shot whiskey
  • 2 shots hot water
  • 1, 2, or 3 Tbs. honey (depending on your desired sweetness)
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • Dash nutmeg

1. In a microwavable mug, combine all ingredients, except the nutmeg. A note: 3 Tbs. of honey will make it really sweet–so sweet you can’t taste the whiskey. It’s up to you how much you want.

2. Stir to combine. Microwave for a minute. Sprinkle a dash of nutmeg on top.

3. Drink. And feel better soon! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
