Kansas City, opinion, cocktails, snark.

Wash your damn hands.

The flu, currently hammering other parts of the nation, is on the rise here at home. I’m unable to locate a copy on the internets of the alert I saw at The Work today, but the Kansas City Health Department is estimating that 46 percent of the city’s workforce will be out with this ick at some point during the next few weeks. So take care of yourselves and try to keep the germ spreading to a minimum.

If you do get sick, I recommend a hot toddy made with Bigelow Mint Medley Herbal Tea and a good slug of American Honey liqueur. It may not actually lower your viral load, but passing out can be a mercy.


  1. Mmmmmm, plague season. My favorite.

    What’s honey liqueur? The only honey-derived alcohol I am aware of is mead and that seems entirely too SCA for your tastes.

  2. Wild Turkey American Honey is a bourbon-based liqueur which I originally didn’t care for until I found it to the be the perfect hot toddy ingredient. Any other way than with a hot beverage, it’s kinda sickly sweet and vile, but the marriage to tea makes it into a delightful little beverage.
