It seem like everyone around me is running around with a box of Kleenex in one hand an a cup of Emergen-C in the other. The dreaded flu has hit my office and we are dropping like flies.
I asked around and everyone has their own home remedy for the disastrous sore throat. There is the classic remedy of gargling salt water. Others rely on cough drops or Advil. One coworker swears by gargling hot apple cider vinegar and then drinking a cup. So far I haven’t found any volunteers for that one yet.I found a great way to numb that sore throat is with a hot toddy.
Hot Toddy Recipe
3/4 cup of boiling water
2 shots of brandy
Tablespoon of honey
And a slice of lemon.
Add brandy, honey and lemon to boiling cup of water, stir and enjoy! Sore Throat be gone.
If you prefer you can substitute the brandy for either whiskey or scotch another recipe suggests you use tea instead of water.
