Whisky: The Original Celtic Curative

Nov 25, 2013 by

It is an old and commonly accepted Celtic maxim that if whisky can’t cure it, there is no cure for it, whatever it may be.  Wise words for the holiday season…

Whisky Drink for Surviving  the Holidays

Whisky: The Celtic Cure for What Ails Ye    Image by Jamie Chung http://ti.me/1fEkDvt

 

We all know that big family holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas bring on stress, and stress, in turn, makes us more susceptible to coughs and colds and other icky illnesses.  Our Celtic ancestors played host to visiting relatives, too, and knew full well the perils of gathering the clan all in one confined space, especially when those clansmen and women were packing heat, or at least swords and axes.
Luckily for you, beautiful Celtic people, your ancestors created a magical elixir to settle frayed nerves and ward off potential nasties brought by relatives on their holiday visit.  I’m speaking, of course, about uisge beatha,  the water of life,  better known as whisky (Scotland) and whiskey (Ireland and the US).  In fact, the word “whisky”(with or without the e) is an anglicization of the Scottish Gaelic word  “uisge” and the Irish Gaelic word “uisce”, meaning water.  Uisge beatha roughly translates as “lively water” or ” water of life.”

When I’m feeling ” a mite peaked “, as we Southerners say, I add just a little hot water to my Lagavulin  and sip it in front of the fire or while I’m reading–always make me feel better. If you aren’t in the mood to take your whisky neat, however, try this clever cocktail created by New York bartender Sam Ross. It combines the curative properties of lemon, honey and ginger with the bracing properties of a good single malt.

Sláinte–to your health!

The Penicillin:

Muddle fresh ginger in a cocktail shaker, add 2 oz of scotch (lightly peated, such as Bunnahabhain ), 3⁄4 oz. fresh lemon juice, 3/4 oz. honey syrup(I use pure honey with equal parts hot water), and shake with ice.

Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass, and pour 1/4 ounce of Islay single malt scotch (such as Laphroaig or Lagavulin) over the back of a bar spoon so that it floats on the drink.
 Garnish with candied ginger.

 

Need to know how to pronounce all those glorious Scottish whisky brand names?  Scots actor Brian Cox and Esquire magazine created a group of very short videos to help you speak whisky with the best of them.  Here’s Brian’s pronunciation of Lagavulin, one of the best and most famous whisky brands:

Mackinlay’s Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky is a Scotch that recently earned world-wide headlines. It was blended and bottled by Charles Mackinlay & Sons of Leith and Inverness, Scotland. In 1907, crates went to Antarctica with explorer Ernest Shackleton, for his “Nimrod” expedition, headed for the South Pole. The expedition was thwarted by weather and abandoned. Several wooden crates were discovered a century later, in Shackleton’s frozen hut. Whyte & Mackay has recreated the 1907 whisky.
