It's officially spring time in Atlanta, when I get sick. For everybody it's different but when I get sick I start off with an unbearable sore throat that feels like I'm swallowing glass. Last week I felt it coming on and decided to try my mom's old home remedy that always worked for her: hot lemon water with honey and a splash of Fireball whiskey (if you're of legal age, of course). I drank this for an entire day and the next day when I woke up, when I'm usually congested with a fever, there was nothing. Mom does know best in this case because this drink immediately got rid of my impending cold and I felt better than ever.
PS: Please note I'm not a doctor however this recipe worked great for me!
