Now this may be just what you need, if you've been fighting influenza: a sorbet for people who have the flu.

I'd never heard of such a thing, but something that came by e-mail quotes a story in the New York Post, and it sounds like somebody's old family flu remedy, although it's definitely not from my family.

It's available from a company in Manhattan called Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, and the company says it's good for people who have the flu.

I'm guessing it's for adults who have the flu, because one of the ingredients is a particular brand of bourbon.

Oh, it also has other ingredients, including cayenne pepper, ginger and honey.

You can probably sort it all out for yourself at the company's website, which is jenis.com.

My guess is it should either taste good or be effective, since it costs $12 a pint.
