Old Irish Remedy
Last week, I was back in Ireland for a vacation in the brisk rainy Irish October weather. Since I live in a desert climate, the rain and wind was a welcomed relief for a little while, and then it got colder.

Then I got a sore throat. It was just a sore throat, a little scratchiness, some mucus.

Then bam! I was down for the count.

Fortunately, Stephen's mother made a remedy that brought me back from near death. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating just a bit, but this really did the trick.

If you have a sore throat, do the following:

Fill a small sauce pan halfway with water.

Slice a lemon and put the lemon slices into the water.

Bring lemon water to a boil.

Strain and pour into a glass.

Add honey.

Add a shot of whiskey (I had Jamesons).

Drink immediately.

Not only did I sleep well that night, my sore throat was gone the next day. This stuff works.
