I have a cold, a bad one and being male it is far worse than any womancould have... ;-)


My resolve is this on an evening:


Warm red wine (ie Bordeaux is good)

Splash of apple juice

Sugar, tablespoon

Lemon juice

Splash of rum


All warmed (NOT boiled).  Lovely nightcap,  Better than anything the doctor could describe.

If you are really having trouble breathing try:

Yes Mr Helweg

That does clear the nasals!!



A nice old Hot Toddy always clears the throat and fuzzys the head quite well. Great for warming up after some brisk winter work.


1 oz brandy, whiskey, or rum
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 lemon
1 cup hot water
1 tea bag


Coat the bottom of a mug or an Irish coffee glass with honey.
Add the liquor and the juice of the lemon quarter.
On the side, heat water in a tea kettle and add the tea bag to make hot tea.
Pour the steaming tea into the glass and stir.

That sounds very good . .

It provided a welcome, tasty, temporary relief. I recommend it.

Ward 8 Cocktail:

Whiskey to ease the cough, lemon and orange juices to help the immune system.  Broscience?  Possibly.  Delicious?  Absolutely.

1/5 Ginger Brandy
1 electric blanket
Take to bed
Sweat it out.

Hot sauce andVodka !!!  Sounds like a mix!

I load up on Vitamin C, liquid form and herbal tea. No alcohol, but lots of water.

That's what I do for money. I also enjoy a good book, a good action flick, some physical exercise (no matter the form). I have power lifted, cross-fitted, hiked, team sported, rock climbed, surfed, skated, you name it, I have tried my hand. "jack of all trades, master of none" as they say. I play music and sing, something I…See More
