New Year, new health kick. We’ve resolved to be healthier in 2016, to exercise more and get our daily fix of antioxidants and vitamins. So a modified whiskey sour is just what the doctor ordered: a mixture of immunity-boosting ginger, antioxidant rich honey, high in potassium egg whites, vitamin overload lemon and a dash of cayenne pepper (the ancient therapeutic wonder spice). And whiskey – for health and happiness of spirit. Lose the whiskey and combine ingredients with hot water for an even healthier health kick, or double the recipe and share with a friend. Go ahead, drink to your health!
