The littlest one seems to have kicked the nasty illness he has had (!!) but now B and I are fighting off a little something. B has a sinus infection it seems, and I feel pretty good comparatively but I do have a raw throat that tickles. Last night it was making it hard to sleep and so I took a little cough medicine. homemade. Wowza did it work, no coughing all night long!
Just happened to have everything in the house and so here it is - equal parts fresh squeezed lemon juice, honey, and whiskey. Hot or room temp but nice and warm made it feel good coating my throat. One to two tablespoons as needed. It's strong but tasty and effective.
