In my 20's, I once tried to cure a bad cold by drinking a large quantity of ouzo. Woke up the next morning with a bad hangover and a bad cold. Never again!

Grew up using Chicken Soup for colds and just because my family liked it. Also have used the Ginger tea with lemon, cayenne pepper. They both have provided some comfort as well as reief of some cold and other symptoms.

"Rock and Rye", old remedy and sold at Red Dot stores. It's prepared from recipes of old days of our grandparents. You can hear it, add honey and lemon, or out of bottle. It's about $3.00 for pint. It works good. But stay warm.
