Hello everyone and sorry I have been so mousy quiet I have some kind of cold or flu thing the last week. I thought it might be nice to post what for me and my family is the most effective anti-cold hot drink, which we call “honey and lemon”. It’s a quarter of a cup of lemon juice (fresh) and a quarter of a cup of orange juice (fresh) with a teaspoon of honey, topped up with hot water and a slice of lemon or orange with a few cloves in it. That makes it not only kind of menthol-y but also a bit fancy! I would only ever take max. 3 a day because they are quite acidic but it really works. Slices of ginger in hot water also works very well, particularly for the throat.
Hope that helps somebody! It’s miserable having the cold! But afterwards you appreciate your nostrils and throat and head working properly for you like never before :)
