    Usually just whiskey or gin, depending on the mood.  Sometimes it is nice to have a hot toddy with either hot water or tea, honey, lemon, and brandy or whiskey. 

    Also good ol Grand Ma.  G-ma, neat warmed up in a snifter.  (Hint- only takes a short time in the microwave).  If G-Ma is too sweet for your liking try mixing with another brandy or Cognac.  

    Hope you feel better! 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Haven't had a cold since I can't remember when.  Keep my feet dry and head covered.  Drink alcohol every day - that's the ticket!

    Full shot of freshly squeezed lime juice followed by full shot of ta-kill-ya.  Yes, backwards.
    If that doesn't work, try again.

    @ShadowNick Just picked some up, might make a hot toddy with it.

    @Eggcelsior I tired a NettiPot once, never again, absolutely hated that feeling.

    Get a sinus rinse. It's a bit easier to use(squirt bottle).

    The feeling can be unsettling, but you get used to it. Once you see a ton of snot and crap pour out of the opposite nostril? You get used to it REAL QUICK because it's awesome to get a good night's rest with clear nasal passages. I use it frequently; it helps prevent you from getting sick because it continually washes the bad crap out.

    I use the squirt bottle for allergies, it's weird, but it works.

    And tequila.

    Ok, maybe I'll try the squirt bottle, after some alcohol. Hopefully that will make the sensation a bit more doable.

    All my good deeds this week have not gone unpunished... Head stuffed full.

    Back from the store with the fixin's  for some hot toddy's... Not even egging today, maybe even tomorrow. I have leftover chicken soup, pasta and gravy, and the pulled pork. Seems like it's a good day to get cozy and enjoy a few toddy's and maybe a stick :)

    On to #2...

    First was with Makers, pretty good. This second on I did with Sailor Jerry; like this much better.

    Feeling a little better except my sinuses are jammed up, might be time to go snort some horseradish LOL I got one of those sinus rinse kits, not sure it really help
