But if you catch the dreaded influenza virus anyway this flu season (January and February are peak months), this tasty whiskey cocktail can make being sick it a little more tolerable.

Generic Robitussin DM is a great cough syrup

But a hot toddy helps

Will confirm, have been gurgling some pure whiskey today and it is truly a splendid care-incinerator.

Yeah, the hot toddies, whiskey, and like "remedies"work best on those illnesses that go away within 2 weeks if you treat them, and 14 days if you don't treat them.

Thanks for the recipe, but we used to get that drink as kids. I still rely on it, and like it much better than NyQuil. This drink helps you rest and is tastier by far than that icky green or red stuff.
