Influenza Sorbet by Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream (http://www.jenis.com)
(WUSA) -- Would you buy sorbet that claims to help fight the flu? If so, would you pay $12 a pint for it?
Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream hopes customers will buy its influenza sorbet based on a home remedy for battling the flu.
The company's website features this description: "It's proven to clear nasal passages, ease a sore throat, and soothe the body. It's modeled on the home remedy Jeni's mother and grandmother used to make 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."
The sorbet includes cayenne pepper, ginger, honey, orange juice, lemon juice, whiskey, and a little bit of medicine.
