Common Cold Remedy
Andrea tagged me with food blog meme: What is your Common Cold Remedy, especially as it relates to food?
I grew up in Georgia, but have lived in Texas for nearly 20 years. Ten or 15 years ago, I made a long road trip home for a visit, and at some point I developed a nasty cough. I couldn't sleep at night. I would fall asleep, then wake myself and the rest of the house with cough spasms that would not stop.
My dad put a little tumbler of peach schnapps on my bedside table and told me to sip on it. At first it tasted hot and alcoholic, but much better than any cough syrup I ever got as a kid. It tasted better and better the more I sipped. I fell asleep and slept through the night.
I have since discovered (in the name of scientific research) that it is also perfect for soothing a sore throat. I won't tell if you try this even if you don't have either a cold, cough or a sore throat.
Kevin, Anna, Sweetnicks, TAG, you're all it.
