    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    Okay, so our family doctor suggested this instead of prescription cough syrup for relieving the cold symptoms of the ADULTS in our family (he of course, did NOT suggest it as a CURE). He says the whisky helps you sleep while the honey and lemon soothe your throat. I'm pretty sure it works, but in the end we really don't care because we love this warm drink when we aren't feeling well. Even sometimes when we are feeling well! UPDATE: Our beloved Dr. Pat passed away November 19,2010 at the age of 59 from Melanoma so now this recipe with all of it's great reviews is even more special to our family. We will miss you forever Pat!!!

      A friend of mine swears by fireball (cinnamon) whiskey to knock out a bad cold. It's powerful stuff but in my opinion took the typical hot toddy up a notch! Not sure it really cures a cold but it sure makes it a more enjoyable experience. ;)

      My mom used to make these when she was sick with a head cold or chest cold all the time. She swore by it and it was her family recipe as well. Great one for relief- a guarenteed way to sleep through the night.

      Just what the doctor ordered..I used Glenfiddich and was probably a little heavy handed on the whisky but being a good Scottish girl its how my Granda would expect me to have it. Cheers!
