Author Notes

This is a guaranteed warmer-upper, sinus-clearer, and overall make-you-feel-better drink, as long as you're not taking any medications for which alcohol is contraindicated. I credit my dear friend Rose Schweikhart, owner of Superior Bathhouse Brewery and Distillery in Hot Springs, AR, with this one. —Kayb

Review
I'm a business professional who learned to cook early on, and have expanded my tastes and my skills as I've traveled and been exposed to new cuisines and new dishes. I love fresh vegetables, any kind of protein on the grill, and breakfasts that involve fried eggs with runny yolks. My recipes tend toward the simple and the Southern, with bits of Asia or the Mediterranean or Mexico thrown in here and there. And a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on a float in the lake, as pictured, is a pretty fine lunch!
