We have colds..except for Susie. Crossing my fingers she doesn’t get it. She hasn’t been sick yet and I am terrified.
People debate a lot over what is best for colds. Sleep and no stress are the best cures in reality BUT I am a fan of a good aromatic elixir, ie a great burbon hot toddy.
So here is my recipe which just alters the original a little.
Burbon Hot Toddy
1 thin slice of ginger minced
1 cinnamon stick or equivalent in powder form (1/2 tsp)
pinch of pumpkin pie spice
2 shakes (1 tsp) red chili flakes
1/4 shot burbon of your choice–I like Makers. This is for flavor and aroma not for drinking drinking!
1 tsp honey
1 large wedge lemon
1 orange wedge
12-16oz boiling water (I always go big on the water–currently drinking a 20ozer)
Inhale vapor and your sinuses will clear, drink when cool and I hope you feel better soon!
