Forget everything you've ever known about modern medicine and dump all your fancy pills down the toilet; there's a new flu-fighter in town and his name is whiskey. In a recent article by The Kitchnn, we're introduced to Bourbon Cough Syrup for Grownups. Quite different than the other grown-up cough syrup we're used to hearing about in modern music, this recipe calls for four simple ingredients: two ounces of bourbon, half a lemon, four ounces of water, and one tablespoon honey.

While anecdotally considered an effective painkiller, consider this 1941 article from TIME magazine in which whiskey is referred to as "one of the cheapest and best painkillers known to man." In the piece, Whiskey for Pain, two doctors reported that only a few ounces of booze raised their "'threshold' of pain 45% for two hours."

I have a love for Lagavulin 16 Year Old single malt. It's 43% and a bit salty at £49 but it's excellent. American bourbons are very nice and not at all sweet, Blanton’s is my favorite but at £80 (that was last year) and a 60 km drive to get it, it's usually a Christmas treat.

Macallan Fine Oak 10 Years Old , kinda spendy ($50), but worth every dollar.
Fruity and a hint of honey.

That's top shelf whiskey and it's making me feel bad about that box of wine in my fridge that I'm going to have to drink to get over this.
