World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

124. Cocktail drink recipes for common cold

 

REPOST from “Yummly”

These look good! but only if they are hot & steamy, and just enough to help you relax to get a good night’s sleep, not get drunk and then have a hangover, which really is from dehydration, so enjoy, but sparingly. with lots of hot liquid.

 

I myself invented a 2 a.m. microwve mulled wine (red wine/water/ agave) but honestly it didn’t taste very good.

You can also make plenty of alcohol-free drinks using juices instead, just please make em steamy hot.

Here are a few “cocktail remedies” for those days when you really need a soothing pick me up. Don’t skimp on the ginger and lemon, and feel better soon!
