Thanks "Swedish Chef for the name." This was a drink we always had after a long day of skiing. Up north in MI ...cold, icy, and either snowmobiling, cross country or skiing at the local resort all day, we were frozen! This was the drink. We would heat up a whole bottle of Vernors on the stove with a lemon and honey, poured into mugs and topped with brandy and bourbon. A simple warm wonderful drink. You can also use a orange, but the lemon was always our favorite. Now I have tried this with Canada Dry and it just isn't the same, but there are many other brands similar to Vernors if you can't find it. It is just a great combination. The best part is ... you can just microwave a teaspoon of honey, Vernors, and a slice of lemon in a mug - then top it with bourbon and brandy and you can make this just for one if you want.
