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.
- 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.
