My, my, has it been a month already?
Between the search for – and eventual beginning of – a new job the time is just flying.
This weekend I’m home in Ireland and typically I have come down with a horrible head cold. I’m sweaty and snotty and headache-y and miserable.
I tried a variety of painkillers to make me feel better.
I tried regular tea, green tea and vitamins.
But the only thing that has gone any way toward improving my health or mood so far is hot whiskey. I’m not a big whiskey person, but should you find yourself in this situation I thoroughly recommend it:
- 1 generous shot of Jameson
- 1 slice of lemon
- Cloves if you want to get fancy about it, but they’re not really necessary
- 2 spoons of sugar if, like me, you don’t really like the taste of whiskey
- Top it up with hot water
It reduces your symptoms making you feel a bit better and gets you a bit drunk making you feel happier – talk abut a win-win situation.
Now excuse me whilst I drink myself into a stupor. It’s medicinal.
