So husband has like the flu or something gross. He’s not a big fan of home remedies because they usually involve several pills or some form of syrup or drink which means you have to……taste it yuck. A friend from work gifted him a bottle of bourbon. He told him to make a hot toddy out of it since that is what he drinks every time he gets sick. And because it’s a gift from a friend he was willing to try it …yay!
(A brief aside I always found it funny that the korean word for medicine sounds alot like yuck….my mom would always come to me when I was sick and tell me to eat this or that yak and it was always just that, yuck.)
1 mugful of hot water
1 black tea bag
1 tbs lemon juice
2 tsp honey
2 oz bourbon (up to 4 oz but he’s not a big fan of alcohol)
Steep the black tea in the hot water for 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon and honey until the honey is dissolved. Pour in the bourbon and enjoy 🙂
This is great for when you are sick. The honey soothes the throat, the lemon juice has vitamin-c, the alcohol helps sleep, and the moist heat does wonders. It’s definitely not a cure but it’s definitely a help. Friends are awesome.
