Yeah, if you're slightly drunk, you won't care how you feel.
My recipe is:
1/2 pint of 100 proof whisky, Old Grand Dad we prefer
about 10 Starlight mints candies
4 ounces lemon juice
4 ounces honey
Put it all in a large jar in the fridge and let the candies melt, mix it up and take two tablespoons. If that doesn't make you feel better, take two more.
It actually does help clear congestion and open breathing.
