The GrogDog feels a cold coming on, which is never fun. But a recently released study from the Oregon Health & Science University suggests that small amounts of alcohol can help strengthen your immune system. With that in mind and a bourbon toddy in the body, GrogDog hopes to kick this cold to the curb!

Bourbon Toddy

Combine 1.5 oz bourbon and the juice of 1/2 lemon in a mug. Add 8 oz boiling water and 1-2 Tbsp honey (to taste). Stir to combine and drink while warm.

This all-purpose cold-busting toddy will un-stuff your head, give you a shot of vitamin C, soothe your throat, warm you up, and carry you off to sleep fast.

Here’s to your health!
