(KTVI) – A bowl of ice cream could help you kick that nasty flu bug.   An ice cream company called “Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams” has created a virus-soothing treat.

The “Flu Sorbet” contains bourbon, lemon and cayenne pepper, as well as ginger and honey. The ingredients are part of an old family flu remedy.

The dessert sells for $12 a pint in New York.  The owner says her Flu Sorbet eases sore throats and clears up nasal passages.
