I spent the majority of my weekend nursing a stubborn sinus infection, and since everyone believes they have the magic alcohol cure-all for these kind of ailments, I spent a fair amount of time ingesting liquids. I drank brandy and whiskey, bourbon and Baileys, beer and wine, and when those didn't work, I turned to sake at the advice of my server who suggested that sake, along with fruit juices, would be just the thing to weaken my misery. Good try, but no go. Still, the whimsy cocktail, all pretty in pink and accessorized with a paper parasol, certainly made for a worthwhile distraction and conversation piece.
