My grandmother used equal parts of: honey/lemon juice/whiskey/butter. melt/mix all in a little pan and take by teaspoonful as needed.
It works cus 2 winters ago I was home alone (hubs was out of state working) and I came down w/ that miserable bird flu (if you ever get it you will not mistake it for anything! I thought I would break my ribs coughing, and then you cough for about 6 weeks after its done.) anyway, I didnt go to the dr, and bought every otc cough/flu thing they sell, and the only thing that would stop the cough was my grandmas recipe. Id sit w/ the pot and every 15 min had a spoon, let it drizzle into my throat, it would keep the coughing down for about 15 min at a time, where all the pills did nothing. share t
