(Courtesy of "Whiskey Cocktails", Fair Winds Press)  Serves 2.

It’s widely held that a hot cup of strong, meaty broth mixed with a robust Scotch whisky is far greater than the sum of its parts. This is a simple combination of the two but the results, when you’re feeling under the weather, are pretty close to magical. The whisky will relax you a bit so that you can sleep, and hot liquids help ease chest and sinus congestion. Though it’s tempting to use a bouillon cube, try to avoid them. Homemade broth is a far better accompaniment:


8 ounces hot, strong beef, lamb, or chicken broth

3 ounces Scotch whisky


Pre-heat your mug by filling it with boiling water, and then pour the water out. Add the Scotch to the mug, and top with the strong broth. Sip slowly.
