I have been feeling awful lately - coughing, stuffy nose, the whole works. Not the flu, thank goodness, but still, unable to sleep well! I wanted to make the old fashioned flu cocktail, but only had limited ingredients. Here's my play on the bourbon/ginger/citrus cocktail from the good old days.
What You'll Need
1 Shot Sweet/Sour Concentrated Mix (I love the concentrate stuff, I use it 'wrong' but it works better this way, promise. Don't mix it with water)
1 Shot Bourbon (Marker's Mark, Woodford Reserve, something good and from Kentucky is preferable)
1/2 Shot Ginger Liqueur
1/2 Shot Orange Brandy Liqueur
Glass with 4 ice cubes
Pour the above amounts into a glass (you only need one shot glass, I use four for photos only) over ice, starting with the sweet and sour.
Swirl well. It should separate in layers. You will want to stir with a straw or spoon before drinking most likely. Serve and clear your head! It's sour, strong, and quite yummy!
