It’s Cold Season- How About Some Whiskey
It sounds like something that you would have heard from your grandparents. "You have a cold? Here's a shot of whiskey".
It was supposed to be the cure all or something. Turns out, they may have been on to something.
The classic hot toddy, typically made of whiskey, honey, lemon juice and hot water, can subdue the injustices of your inevitable winter cold. The hot water of the toddy helps to relieve nasal congestion, just like heat of a bowl of chicken noodle soup (or Jewish penicillin) does.
So, chicken soup or whiskey, sounds like the choice is yours... well, that mixed with some other remedy. Although there really is no cure for the common cold, you just have to wait it out. But this might make the "waiting" a bit more bearable.
