Influenza Sorbet


Can a sorbet infused with Bourbon really cure the flu?

What if it costs as much as $12?

Still not buying it?

It may not cure the flu, but a lot of folks think that Influenza Sorbet from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams does a fantastic job of treating the flu’s symptoms. Inspired by Jeni’s grandmother’s homemade cough remedy, it’s made from a combination of honey, ginger, orange juice, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and Maker’s Mark bourbon. Not sure if it helps with the flu but it does sound tasty. (BTW, the Bourbon in the mix is in trace amounts so apparently this sorbet is even kid friendly.)

It sounds like a Hot Toddy in ice cream form which is fine idea if you ask me. The price is a bit steep as well but if you find yourself with the flu this season I imagine you’d pay just about anything that helped make you feel better.

I’d love to hear about other bourbon-infused remedies people use for dealing with colds and the flu. Take a moment and share them in the comments section below.

Looking forward to gaining some home remedy knowledge from my fellow Bourbon lovers.
