This is the cure for what ails you, especially if what ails you is a cough or sore throat.  My mom used to mix up some whiskey and honey and lemon juice, pour it in a Mason jar, and set it on my bedside table.  A coughing spell would merit a big slug so as a first grader I was pretty much drinking all night. I recently revived this medicinal drink to get me through a bad chest cold, and it really did work.


Whiskey Sour


    Always use freshly squeezed lemon juice for a good cocktail.

    Step 1

    Make the simple syrup by combining equal parts sugar and water over low heat. When the sugar dissolves give it a good stir, pour into a beaker and let cool.

    Step 2

    Pour bourbon, lemon juice and simple syrup into a shaker. Add ice.

    Step 3

    Shake, strain and pour. Garnish with a fancy cherry and lemon peel.
