So yummy warm and comforting. Mom always just called this "hot lemon and honey" but then added whiskey to it. I made it with the bourbon I had on hand and relaxed nicely.

Worked like a charm! Slept so good after drinking this! I did add just a pat of real butter on top as an extra comfort. Thanks for sharing!

I have a nasty head cold. I slept like a baby last night. I needed the rest. My mom made these for us as kids, but she didn't add the whiskey! No wonder it didn't work!!!!! 8-) Thanks Audrey.
