    Fight the flu
    The Drink: 

    The End Is Nigh

    from Cure, New Orleans
    The Cure: While Varnelli Amaro Sibilla is no longer used as an antimalarial drug, its high concentrations of gentian, a bitter herb, and quinine, an alkaloid found naturally in cinchona-tree bark, may still reduce fever, curb pain, and ease digestion.

    The Ingredients
    11/2 oz Rittenhouse bonded rye
    1 oz Bonal Gentiane-Quina aperitif wine
    1/4 oz Varnelli Amaro Sibilla
    2 dashes of Angostura Bitters

    Combine ingredients in a mixing glass. Stir 40 revolutions and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
