Looking for a cure or even a way to prevent the flu this holiday season? Think about something you could already have in your cupboard - whiskey!
According to Thrillist and the Kitchnn, there's a special recipe - 2 oz of bourbon, half a lemon, 4 oz of water & a tablespoon of honey into a glass to wash down that icky sick feeling instead of cough syrup!
"This 1941 article from TIME magazine in which whiskey is referred to as "one of the cheapest and best painkillers known to man." In the piece, Whiskey for Pain, two doctors reported that only a few ounces of booze raised their "'threshold' of pain 45% for two hours."
The only thing to note here is, just use this recipe once a day at most when you are feeling under the weather because too much could make it worse!
