When I found out that Chef Genuine was sick with a sore throat, I recommended drinking a hot toddie. Here’s the recipe:
In a large travel mug (safety first around the kids!) put in 1 to 2 (or more) ounces of your favorite bourbon, lots of honey and lemon juice. If you have fresh ginger or a lemon, add some slices.
Put in a tea bag or two of your favorite herbal tea for colds like Celestial Seasonings Echinacea Cold Care. If you don’t have a cold-specific herbal tea, try a ginger tea, a mint tea like Celestial Seasonings Peppermint or chamomile teas like Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile or the classic, knock-you-out Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Natural Herb Tea. Add hot water and stir. Do not remove tea bag.
Put lid on your travel mug. Sip until you pass out.
(Remember: It’s a bad idea to mix alcohol with most night time cold remedies.)
