Cold treatment: Hot toddy

I’m coming down with something. Or I’ve been coming down with it all week, I guess. I’m not sure it’s here yet.

While blowing my nose on the phone with my mother last night, she prescribed a hot toddy:

  • A shot of brandy in hot water
  • A tablespoon or two of sugar (a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down)
  • Honey (a generous squirt)
  • Nutmeg
  • Drink and go directly bed.

You’ll feel better in the morning, Mother said.

It worked. I’m not over whatever it is that I have, but I did manage to run 5 miles this morning.

Thanks, Dr. Mom.
