“Cold and Flu season are here. As a child, I used to get sick quite a bit and always seemed to get a nasty cough. My grandmother used to prepare this drink for me, it really helped and tasted so good (since I was a child, she didn't add a full shot of whiskey, but she did add some). The drink worked and by the next day, my cough was better. As an adult, I still prepare this drink when I get a cold. It may not cure you completely, but it will make you feel better and soothe your soul too :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the tea.
  2. Note about tea: Use what you like and experiment. I use regular tea, but my grandmother always used Irish tea.
  3. Add the whiskey to the mug, then the honey, then the lemon.
  4. Stir thoroughly, add the cinnamon stick (let sit a few minutes - about 2 minutes - stir again), then drink.
  5. Hot drinks are great for a dry cough.
