What We’re Loving: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams' Influenza Sorbet

Everyone’s feeling under the weather, and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams has the perfect cure
Summer Ice Cream Sundae

It seems everyone and their mother has the flu, had the flu recently, or is one more cough away from getting it. It’s inevitable — it’s just that time of the year.

In between sniffles, bottomless cups of tea, and chicken soup, we’re going to need a bit of a pick-me-up, and no a rom-com marathon isn’t what we’re talking about. We’re talking the good stuff — a little sorbet, perhaps?

If you or someone you know is feeling under the weather, that definitely calls for SOS sorbet, one that will heal all wounds and taste great to boot. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams of Columbus, Ohio, never fails to bring character to their flavors. With a collection that includes incredible flavors like Salty Caramel, Whiskey and Pecans, Goat Cheese and Red Cherries, and Rainbow Frozen Yogurt, Influenza Sorbet is just one more to add to the list.

With cayenne, ginger, Maker's Mark bourbon, honey, and cold- and flu-fighting orange and lemon juices as ingredients, it’s no wonder it cures just about anything.

Here’s what founder Jeni had to say:
"This is our flu-season fix. It’s proven to clear nasal passages, ease a sore throat, and soothe the body. It’s modeled on the home remedy my mother and grandmother made when anyone in the family was under the weather. Sniffles, aches, and fevers meant one thing: a mug of hot whiskey with honey and lemon juice, then straight to bed."
