It's time to take matters into my own hands. As this blog post went to press your correspondent was enjoying the following remedy:
Grill Knuckles Homemade Cough Syrup
- 3 parts bourbon. To my chagrin I only had my top-shelf Woodford Reserve handy. Oh well. Bottoms up!
- 1 part lemon juice
- 2 spoonfuls honey
Microwave the bourbon and lemon juice in your favorite mug until hot. Stir in the honey. Sip. Ahh. Sip. Sip. Zzz.
