Sick as a dog with the Flu ? Try a little Whiskey or Bourbon

When you are sick with the flu

It's possibly the worst thing in the world. You brain and body literally shuts down. Everything hurts and everything is sore. You're supposed to drink plenty of fluids and get alot of rest but one thing that I always reach for when I need some relief is a little bit of honey and bourbon. It might be an old wives tale but it really does make me feel alot better.

From WebMD:

Hot liquids relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed membranes that line your nose and throat. If you're so congested that you can't sleep at night, try a hot toddy, an age-old remedy. Make a cup of hot herbal tea. Add one teaspoon of honey and one small shot (about 1 ounce) of whiskey or bourbon. Limit yourself to one. Too much alcohol will inflame the membranes and make you feel worse.

I usually reach for the golden blossom honey and some Bulleit Rye Whiskey. Those two usually go really well together. It might be just for a piece of mind but sometimes a little whiskey, some Netflix and PS4 go a long way towards the road to becoming human again.
