Super Sore throat

OK so I looked online and a lot of people use ACV & honey or honey & lemon for a sore throat.  I also found this one on a forum:

01/20/2010: Rhapsodie from Belfast, Ny replies: "Stephen, I love my cider vinegar mix. 1-2 tbsp. of vinegar, 1-2 tbsp of honey, 1-2 cups of hot water, ginger to taste, cinnamon to taste, and sweetening to taste. My recommendation is to use the same measurements of vinegar and honey as you do water. The benefits of the honey, ginger, and cinnamon are very healthy. Honey is a healing agent, cinnamon reduces the glucose effect of the honey, and ginger decreases inflammation. I am diabetic and have no sugar problems with the use of this recipe. I have also noticed the benefit of reduced appetite, increased healthy feeling, loss of arthritis pain, more regular bowel movements and NO ACID REFLUX or pain from the combination."

Have any of you tried it?

And as of last night, Baby Girl suddenly had a runny nose like a faucet and my throat feels like I swallowed a steel wool pad plus I started sneezing.

As you know, I'd been fighting off the start of a cold for awhile now but we picked up Step-Daughter on Friday and she was a little sick and here we are.

Here's what I am trying this morning:

2 TBSP natural, wildflower honey mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon
added 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
added 2 TBSP RealLemon juice
added 1 cup warm water

It tastes OK though it looks a little funny (because the cinnamon is floating on top a bit still).


  1. Whiskey and honey cures all ills. My grandmother gave that to me when I was a little girl. It is the best danged thing I have ever used to cure a sore throat.

  2. No booze in the house so I can't do whiskey... though I bet a shot of Crown Royal would've been nice in there.

  3. I hope you shake it. There's a lot of sickness going around.

  4. Thank you for your words of encouragement on my blog.

    Hope you're feeling better soon!
