Kill it with whiskey



There was a few days of feeling deathly ill. I got well enough that, with the aid of over the counter medication, I could pass for human. My lovely wife also had a bout of what I had. We were quite a pair.

My daughter had a Christmas party at her house with a Yankee swap gift exchange. I told her I was not 100% yet and might not go. She told me that everyone in town was dealing with the same cold so come anyway. She said I could “kill it with whiskey.”

So my lovely wife and I showed up. I poured myself a glass of double barrel single malt scotch, just like the doctor ordered. We had a good time and got to see a lot of friends and family. We stayed long enough for the gift exchange and a bit later.

I ended up with really nice camping flask. It should come in handy should I ever have to “kill it with whiskey” once again.

    1. Lots of water and rest too, to be honest.

  5. Merry Christmas! Have you ever considered making and taking Elderberry Syrup? Many places sell the dried elderberries and the home made syrup will stop a cold in its tracks.

    I also buy my berries from mountain rose herbs. I have no connection to that company BTW.

    PS you can add in your favorite adult beverage as a preservative :) of said syrup.
