Warmed orange juice with 3 squeezed lemon wedges, 3 lime, a tbsp or more of honey. You can spike it with whiskey if you want.

Cough: Hot lemonade with raw ginger and a shot up rum.

face-down-asgard-up said: garlic, ginger, tea, mucinex. it’s the Holy Days so maybe some good Jewish chicken noodle soup if you can get your hands on it. fluids, fluids, fluids!
nelliendm said: Soup with a ton of garlic in it. The heat and steam feel good on the throat and sinuses, and garlic supposedly does some good for the immune system. And best of all, even with a cold you can usually still taste garlic.
