“Here it is... I promised I'd post it. My grandmother's sure-fire mix to fix that tickley cough in the back of your throat or that deep wheezy cough that rattles and hurts. Don't worry about the gettin drunk part; you won't be using that much because this is good. Keep in mind these measurements are VERY approximate. HOWEVER, do keep the ratio's kinda the same.”
1/4 cup

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup good strong cheap whiskey
  • 3 peppermint candies (the hard kind)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (this is actually to taste)


  1. In a small fruit jar, place the whiskey and honey.
  2. Crush the peppermints well (this just helps them dissolve) and toss in the jar. If you need it, add the sugar, but if you don't need it, don't add it.
  3. Let sit and the peppermints dissolve.
  4. When you need it, take a spoonful; tablespoon if it's very bad, teaspoon if it's light. It's alright to give this to children, just make it more diluted with water.
