Natural Cough/Sore Throat Remedy

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

OK I don’t normally post “medicinal” type recipes, but I came across this one this AM and had to share… My youngest son was coughing today and I totally ran out of cough medicine and didn’t have any on hand.  I remember my Mom used to mix up a concoction like this one – only more alcoholic (i.e. Puerto Rican rum instead of all that water), but hey that’s how it was in the 70’s!  I tailored this one from a few I found online, and hey – it works!  So i decided to blog it so I could keep it on file.  😉


pinch Cayenne Pepper
pinch Ground Ginger
1/2 Tbs Honey
1/2  Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbs Water


Mix all of the above in a glass until well blended.  Drink in sips (it won’t taste that bad, but it won’t be yummy either) until done.

It really works to help a sore throat and cough.

Of course if that cough/sore throat is persistent please see a doctor.  😉
