Citrus can cure scurvy, a debilitating condition. Our ancient Scot sailor was suffering from this ailment and learned of the benefits of citrus as a cure. The normal dosage of citrus required dilution of the juice in water. However, as a good Scot, he only drank "Mother's Milk from Scotland" which we all know is Scotch Whisky. To affect his cure, our mariner mixed a bit of sweet and a bit of citrus in his daily portion of Scotch Whisky. A miraculous cure was the result for the Scurvy Scot!
