Todays “Sneeky” is from my dear friend and client Dawn Moore. Dawn wanted to call the sneeky the “Drunken Bee” or even “Dad's Cough Syrup” because when she had a sore throat as a little girl, her father used to warm a little whiskey and honey for her.
What I love about this particular fatherly care, is that it was being administered by a legendary western hero we don’t normally associate with a little hooch. Fact: Dawn’s father, Clayton Moore portrayed “The Lone Ranger” on the unforgettable TV show.
So, in an early nod to Father’s Day, here’s a little whiskey and honey. Medicinal, of course.
RECIPE Muddle some fresh Kentucky Mint – the kind used for Juleps - in the bottom of a pretty 6 oz. glass. Don't be shy with the mint.
Add ice and pour 3 oz. of a honeyed-bourbon (I used Wild Turkey's American Honey) followed by 2 oz. of an iced herbal (I used Tazo's Calm) tea – hibiscus, jasmine, chamomile or mint will all work - and stir.
For your nose, float a sprig of mint on the top and hoist a toast to your dad!
