My mother used to give this homemade drink of warm milk and organic honey to us whenever we got sore throats. The best part is that if you want a natural solution instead of taking medication, then this could be the recipe for you. With simple ingredients, it won't break the bank and if you've lost your voice in the pain of having a sore throat, then you can add a little splash of whiskey to set everything in motion. All you need to do is mix it and drink it and your throat will feel so much better. The antibacterial nature of the honey with the milk helps to alleviate and relieve the pressure, swelling, pain and redness of a sore throat whether you got it from the flu or tonsilitis. If you prefer or are dairy-free, you can try an alternative nut milk like almond milk, although I'm not sure it will have the same exact effects. When we were younger we used traditional cow's milk, but I still stand by this home remedy to help sore throat! Honey has been around for hundreds of years as an immune-booster so it's no wonder when it's mixed with these other ingredients it' s like making a magic potion to get rid of a sore throat fast, right at home.

What You'll Need

  • Cow's milk or nut milk
  • - 2 table spoons of honey  
  • Organic, unsweetened honey
  • Whiskey

What You'll Do

  • Warm the Milk and then add two table spoons of honey
  • Drink and start to feel better
  • Warm 1 cup of milk on the stove until quite hot
  • Let cool for a moment
  • Add a tablespoon of organic natural honey with no added sweetners or sugars
  • Mix together until the honey dissolves
  • If you've lost your voice, people say adding whiskey can help disinfect and soothe your vocal cords
  • Drink up
