Cough Remedy




About: Knock on my workshop's door, this is where you'll find me !

Going down with a cold ? Here's something for you !

Ingredients you will need:

- Whisky
- Lemon and lime
- Honey
- Orange juice

Step 1: Whisky

You should feel better already, don't you ?

It doesn't need to be a top shelf bottle, this won't make a difference.

Step 2: Lime and Lemon

Hmmm fresh ! Squeeze the lime and lemon and pour the juice in the glass.

Step 3: Honey

Now, this is where we need your skills !

- Carefully select the honey you will use as this will make a big difference in the taste of your drink.
(I went for a lavander honey. It has a subtile flavour and it's not too strong.)

- Then add about 2 tsp to the glass and mix toroughly

Step 4: Orange Juice

You can of course squeeze some oranges and get the proper stuff.
Squeezing the lemon was already too much hardwork so I decided to use some bottled juice.

Step 5: Drink

Time to drink from the golden grale.
Hope you'll feel better with this !
Take care.

    I usually make a variation of it and yes, it works, especially if you're just starting to feel the symptoms. My recipe calls for whisky, lemon, honey, and a touch of cinnamon.
