An old sore throat "remedy". 3 oz. "White Christmas" rum/brandy low alcohol, alcoholic drink (30 proof). 3 ounces honey 4 ounces lemon juice. 12 ounces of water ( 200 degrees Fahrenheit) mix in a large 32-ounce Pyrodex tumbler. Drink all at once when it is cool enough to consume safely and go to bed. The honey coats/soothes the throat. the lemon juice clears the phlegm (mucus) from the throat. The low alcohol content allows the individual to lapse into a restful sleep without becoming drunk. (Too much alcohol and you'll awaken in the middle of the night). You'll awaken with less throat pain and a good night's sleep. Physicians refer to this as a "palliative". It works.

Apple cider vinegar, honey, ginger, bit of lemon juice and as much cayenne pepper as you can stand, diluted with a bit of hot water.
