Gotta agree with Varani, though it's often called a Hot Toddy... Hell, I might drink one tonight, and I feel fine!

I like the simple hot apple cider with rum. One of them should be spiced for flavor.

Try mine:

1 tablet "Airborne" fizzy drink (Orange or Lime flavor) in fresh spring water...

A "healthy dollop" of Bacardi 151 Rum

Tastes like crap - but it'll knock that sucker right outta the system!!

You got it PapeToaTane!
I do the same. Airborne is made here in Carmel, of all places.

The Nyquil Screwdriver:

1 shot of Nyquil (I like Cherry)
1 8oz glass of OJ

Drink up & huddle under blankets while giggling at old Tom & Jerry cartoons.

Best tropical drink for a cold:

One fifth of good rum
One warm woolen blanket
One space heater

Fire up the space heater on high, down the rum until you are only barely able to wrap yourself in the blanket. Pass out. Sweat. Repeat until disease free.

Ok all you PC police go away for a moment.. I used to love TOm and Jerry. I cant stand them now.. They have butchered it, no longer is the "Mammy" Mammy... all of her vocal tracs have been replaced by what sounds to be Oprah, or someone else... worst off is it wasnt even a convincing edit.. music stops, "Mammy" speaks music picks back up..
So say so long to "TAMMASSS!!! DEYS A MOUSE!!" and hello to "oh Thomas, get that mouse"
ahhh yes politcal correctenss ruins a chilhood institution.
Whats next no more ambiguisly gay gophers? or crossdressing rabbits?
sheesh.
Now back to your regularly scheduled cold remedy..
I prefer whiskey in tea with honey and lemon juice... served pipping hot.. make sure you have someone to bring these to you.. wouldnt want to get burnt...
