A propos of nothing in particular, I felt like sharing some recipes:
My current favourite is a variation on the Hot Toddy
Lemon Scented tea
milk (if that's how you normally have tea)
spoonful of honey
dash of honey vodka
The Hot Toddy is as above but Scotch instead of vodka, a slice of lemon instead of the tea, and no milk.
As you can see, I favour the alcoholic approach to colds, in the belief that it will possibly kill some bugs but failing that will probably make you feel a bit better, at least temporarily.
These are good At Home drinks. If you have to go out, I suggest vodka cranberry (or a cosmopolitan if you feel like being fancy). All the vitamin C in the cranberry juice will have you feeling better in no time.
