Week in Review:

Ryan: - Gotta go to the range this weekend and try shooting my Sig Sauer P226 and my Steyr. I want to get some more rangetime in with those and with the revolvers that I have too. I haven’t been shooting them much!!!!



Drink Segment: Since it seems like everybody is sick right now,  I thought I’d take a classic cocktail and add some folk-remedy twists.

So tonight’s drink is a Whiskey Sour.    Like all the sours (ie Daiquiri,  Margarita,  Gimlet ect)  I use 2 parts whiskey, 1 part Lemon Juice, and 0.5 parts simple syrup.

This of course is shaken over ice.

But tonight I’ve made some adjustments that reflect some folk remedies i’ve heard about.   I think we’ve all heard of remedies that involve the whiskey and the lemon.   Lemon of course is very high in vitamin C which is good for you.   The whiskey part dates back to the times when the only “Medicine” available was “patent medicine” (which in the old days was simply snake oil),  Distilled spirits,  or Opium.

Rather than going with simple syrup which is 1-to-1 white sugar and water that is allowed to boil until it dissolves,   I’ve used honey mixed with a little water so it will go into solution.

Honey has lots of medicinal values from its micronutrients, and it’s said to coat the throat helping with cough.

Also I made the syrup immediately for the drink so this drink is warm rather than room temperature or cold.

Last I added some ginger to it,  ginger is said to help upset stomachs, and is used in many traditional medicines.    Plus it just goes well with all the other ingredients.

We’ll see if it works!
