Suffering from the sniffles and/or other cold and fly symptoms? There are tons of home remedies out there that you can try, but this one found over at The Huntington Post seemed pretty intriguing. If you’ve specifically got sinus pressure, head congestion and a cough, Rebecca at Huffington Post says that a “Tobasco Toddy” is the remedy for you.

Here’s what you need to make it:

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Boiling water
  • Tabasco to taste

Here’s what you do:

Boil enough water to fill a big mug. Mix honey and lemon together in the bottom of the mug. When water is ready, pour over the honey mixture and stir until dissolved. Dash in Tabasco sauce to your liking (I usually use around three shakes), and give it a final stir. Drink while it’s hot.

Have you tried this remedy before? What’s your favorite (maybe slightly strange) home remedy for cold symptoms?
