Some call it a Hot Toddy. Some call it Mercy in a Mug. My family calls it Fix It.
- Decaf/Herbal Tea (Flavor of choice, I recommend lemon or orange. If your tummy isn't your friend, pick peppermint. Back away from the high-test stuff unless you want to stay awake, but you're sick, so sleeping is sort of the point.)
- Hot Water (if you don't have tea concentrate)
- Whiskey (Any member of the whiskey family to include: bourbon, rye, scotch, malt, Irish, single malt, etc.)
Caution: Don't add too much booze. The point isn't to get shit-faced 'cause then you'll only feel worse; plus, puking is to be avoided at all costs. Achieving a "nice buzz" is good. Maybe it takes two mugs to get there. You're sick. When that first yawn attacks, give in. Have a good rest. You can make more Fix It tomorrow.
One of the few benefits of getting sick is an excuse to drink hot toddies!ReplyDelete
Yes! The regional differences in making Hot Toddies amuse me greatly. Tea or no tea? Lemon, cinnamon stick, both, neither? When I'm sick, I'll take it any way it shows up!Delete
The Petri dishes are EVERYWHERE!!! Ahhh!!! And I can't believe I've never tried one of these because it sounds so perfect for a cold!ReplyDelete
After seeing some of your snow pics of the pup out for walks, I'd have one just to dethaw!Delete
