The Golden Cure

This cocktail is great for Louisiana’s roller coaster ride like Winters. I don’t know if our fluctuating temperatures really make us sick but I do know that the ingredients are said to stave away or help heal Winter time sicknesses. Or maybe it just gives you a good buzz. Either way…enjoy.


2 ounces bourbon

3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

3/4 ounce honey

2 pieces of thinly sliced fresh ginger


In a rocks glass, muddle ginger, lemon juice and honey. Pour muddled ingredients into a cocktail shaker and fill shaker with ice. Add bourbon then cap and shake. A lot. You want to dissolve the honey so shake for at least 20 seconds. Strain cocktail into a rocks glass with 1 large ice cube or several smaller ones or into a martini glass with out the ice. To your health!
