Rob Bresser’s Drink of the Month – November 2007

The Flu Buster
Recipe by Me

Green tea bags
Whiskey (cheaper version)
Lemon juice (bottled)
Honey (pure)

I usually use Celestial Seasonings brand green tea, and Johnnie Walker Black Label whiskey (not so cheap that I wouldn’t drink it alone.)

Start boiling the water and poor 1 ½ oz whiskey, 1 tbsp lemon juice and honey to taste into your favorite mug (mine’s a bigger one (to hold more whiskey.))  Add the hot water and steep the tea bag.  Sip and enjoy.  Works best if you just hold the mug under your nose between sips and inhale the steam.  Guaranteed to open up blocked nasal passages, soothe sore throats, help you sleep, AND feel better.  I’ve been told by friends that they drink two before bed and sleep great.  I usually have 4 or 5; or 10.  If you are going to work, replace the whiskey with a Halls Mentho-lyptus cough drop to get a similar effect, without all the hassle of being fired.
