#FoodieFriday “Christmas Cold” Remedy

cold remedy

‘Tis the Season! And I’m not talking about the holly jolly holidays … every year around Christmas and the New Year, I come down with a nasty head cold.

Well, this year the “Christmas cold” came early. I spent the weekend in my PJs alternating between the bed and couch while self-medicating and liberally applying “breathe” essential oil from my mom. To be honest, I didn’t mind too much because it gave me a perfectly good excuse to be a bum!

If you, like me, come down with that post-nasal drip during these wintry months, I have the perfect remedy. Although technically not a food, this is one recipe you won’t want to miss the next time you feel a tickle in your throat. A take on your usual hot toddy, this concoction will clear your sinuses, soothe your throat and help you sleep.

“Christmas Cold” Remedy

  • Tennessee Honey Whiskey
  • hot water
  • lemon
  • honey
  • Tabasco sauce (I know it sounds crazy, but this is the key ingredient!)

Mix all ingredients to taste. I usually fill the mug with a finger or two of whiskey, juice from a quarter of a lemon, a tablespoon of honey and a few dashes of Tabasco sauce before filling with boiling water to the top. Stir it up and enjoy!


Happy #FoodieFriday, y’all!
