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.
