Scotsman's Slumber

adapted from Apothecary Cocktails
Warm drinks made with Scotch whisky are tried-and-true ways for courting that elusive gnome named Sleep. That's because Scotch is a versatile healer: It's said to be effective against tension, restlessness, and even sleepwalking.

  • 3 ounces (90ml) Scotch whisky
  • 6 ounces (175ml) strong beef bouillon
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon 

Preheat a mug by filling it with boiling water; discard the water after a few seconds. Add the Scotch whisky to the mug and top it with the beef bouillon.

Add a squeeze of lemon to the mixture, stir gently, and raise your mug to good health. As the Irish say, a good laugh and a long sleep are truly the best cures.
