None of these are a proper solution. Step one, heat 2/3 of a tall glass full of water for two minutes in the microwave. Step 2, remove glass of now hot water and stir in a heaping spoon of REAL honey… stir until dissolved. Step 3, squeeze half of a lemon into the glass. Step 4, fill the remainder of the glass with a decent highland scotch (try to get something that isn’t too peaty, although I do enjoy some peat, just not with this recipe). Step 5 stir. Step 6 enjoy.
Drink two before you feel the colds full effects and you’ll probably pull through like the true champion that you are.
@drbaldridge You had me up until the scotch part. (Not saying the scotch part is bad, just that I’ve never tried it.) I love the hot water with lemon and honey though, it is so good that I even drink it when I DON’T have any sore throat.
These things, in fact all of the “Ricola Dual Action” cough drops, are horrific atrocities. It’s hard to fathom how these foul creations came from the same people who gave us the sublime honey ricolas.
If they somehow bypassed the clearance bins and went straight to Meh, that should tell you everything you need to know about these things.
I’m sick a lot, but Ricola isn’t my jam. Halls’ Menthol (blue) sugar-free is the ticket. Calories/blood sugar not an issue, and most importantly, they don’t make that weird gross film that regular ones do.
