Hot Irish Whiskey: The Cure for Literally Everything

by | February 1, 2019

Every time I call my Irish mother to complain about an ailment, she tells me to make myself a hot Irish whiskey. A sore throat? Make yourself a hot whiskey. The Flu? Make yourself a hot whiskey. Broken leg? Make yourself and hot whiskey. Obviously, there’s no medical science behind this; I think it’s basically just to warm you up and sweat whatever it is out of you. I’ve been living in the US for twenty years, and every time I’ve ordered a hot whiskey, it’s made WRONG. Here is the correct way to make a hot Irish whiskey.
