Have you caught the crud that is going around at work? It's hard to avoid when lots of other people at work at getting it.  As someone who talks for a living, a sore throat is the worst for me.

Best thing for a sore throat is at Hot Toddy, but it's important that is it made right.  I bartended both times I went to college. Whiskey, whatever your pleasure, although the new honey-flavored Jack Daniels seems to work really well. Tea or water, real lemon juice and honey.

Microwave it for a minute or two and you are set.  You'll sleep better and I think something in the Jack helps to fight the sickness.
