All symptoms of a wicked thing we call the Flu. The Flu is striking with a vengeance this season, attacking men, women, and children. After speaking to my mother, a few days ago she complained of having a few of these wretched symptoms but over the past few days they became exceedingly worse. I asked her the most common question, when one is told that they are sick
“Well, have you taken anything and if so, What?”
So, I decided then to brwose and see what I can tell her to take because hearing your strong independant mother sound as if she was dying was not a great thing.
I came a cross this recipe for Bourbon Cough Syrup, for adults only, on thekitchn. Its a pretty simple recipe all needed is bourbon whiskey, honey, lemon and water. Thats all guys, not rocket science people.
If you have been bitten with this awful flu definitely try this little concoction and let me know how you feel after…
Bourbon Cough Syrup for Grownups
2 ounces bourbon whisky
1/2 lemon, juiced (about 2 ounces)
2-4 ounces water (optional)
1 tablespoon honey
Mix the bourbon, lemon juice, and water (if using) in a tumbler or mug and heat in the microwave for about 45 seconds. (You can also do this on the stovetop in a little saucepan.) Take out and add the honey. Whisk to combine, then microwave for another 45 seconds.
If you’re sick, it’s best not to drink this too hot; a good warm temperature is better. Take it to bed and nurse it slowly with a book in the other hand.
