Booze Is The Key To Kicking Your Cold

by Stephanie Maida · February 3, 2017

Currently singing those winter cold blues? Just because you're stuck in bed all weekend doesn't mean you can't get a little tipsy. In fact, it'll probably make you feel better! 

Studies show that while sucking on a cough drop can soothe an irritated throat, because it gets saliva flowing, cough syrup is essentially ineffective. What is effective for that clogged-up nightmare you're facing? A hot toddy! Turns out your grandmother's age-old remedies are real. The honey and lemon help soothe, the hot steam helps open up your sinuses, and well, the whiskey helps put you to bed. Can't think of a better remedy than that!
