I have the sniffles and a scratchy throat.
I know it is the time of year for it, but it is still a bit uncomfortable. I am not that sick and dont feel like I need to go to the doctors just yet. I like to wait a week or two if possible to make sure it dosnt go away on its own. As you know a doctors office can be a bit expensive and I would feel real silly if they said it was just a cold, so I wait.
In the meantime, I like to make this concoction to make me feel better. There is no scientific evidence that it works, it just makes me feel a bit better. Maybe because it soothes my throat and opens my nasal passages.
1 tablespoon honey
1 oz whisky (jameson)
1 lemon wedge
1 cup hot water
1 teabag (lipton)
Coat the bottom of your coffee cup with honey.
Add the whisky and lemon juice from the lemon wedge
In a separate pot combine the water and the tea and allow to steep for 5 minutes.
Add the tea mixture to the honey mixture. Enjoy hot!
Peace be with you,
