Jeni’s Influenza Sorbet

How can you not try Influenza Sorbet? One of the new seasonal items from the flavor gurus at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, this flu-thwarting concoction draws inspiration from vintage home remedies. Its zippy blend of orange and lemon juices, honey, cayenne pepper, ground ginger, and whiskey will clear your sinuses quicker than a bowl of wasabi. I tasted the sorbet without being under the weather, but it reminded me that the Short North is the place to be if your immune system is compromised. For years, my go-to congestion redemption has been the spicy lemongrass broth from Lemongrass. Packed with chili paste, it swiftly roundhouses even the most stubborn of colds. Being sick sucks, but these homegrown antidotes make coping a little more fun.
