Medicinal Compound

Course Drinks
Servings 1 person


  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground clove
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger either dried or fresh-grated
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (about a third of a lemon, squeezed) and the zest from the same
  • whiskey of your choice


  • Add all of the ingredeniets to a mug of your choice.
  • Add boiling water to fill half the cup. Fill the remainder of the cup with whiskey.


“Proper” use:
Hold the mug directly under your nose and breathe in the warm aromatics until the Compound becomes cool enough to drink. Then, imbibe as quickly as possible, as warm as possible. If still feeling poorly (or quite frankly, feeling anything at all) rinse and repeat as necessary.
