Body Pains!

Sore Throat!

 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.

Sleep well!
