Cocktail Remedies for the Common Cold
In the strictest sense, alcohol, being a diuretic, is not something you should consume while you're sick. However, tradition and old wives tales have held for ages that few things soothe an aching, burning throat better than a good old-fashioned hot toddy and bedrest. Here are a few "cocktail remedies" for those days when you really need a soothing pick me up. Don't skimp on the ginger and lemon, and feel better soon!
