Got the flu? Try 'bourbon flu' ice cream

Treat contains whiskey, cayenne pepper

COLUMBUS, Ohio - There could be a sweet side to having a nasty bout of the flu this year.

Jeni's ice cream is offering an 'Influenza Sorbet' that is said to help with flu symptoms including sore throats, body aches and stuffy noses.

The Ohio ice cream company said the sorbet contains Maker's Mark whiskey, cayenne pepper, ginger, honey, orange and lemon juices.

"It’s modeled (after) a home remedy: a mug of hot whiskey with honey and lemon juice, then straight to bed," the website said.
