When I was little I used to have a froat. Now when I’m home sick with a burning inside my neck I feel like a little kid with a froat and would gladly wake up to my mom by my side to take care of me. But now, I’m home alone (Isabelle is off climbing at Brooklyn Boulders Somerville with her dad and Henry is out playing with a friend.) and I need to take care of myself.
Here’s a perfect throat soother, a variation on what my mom would sometimes make me.
Bourbon and Lemon Throat Soother
Squeeze the lemon juice into your favourite mug. Add in honey (more or less to taste). Add the Bourbon and then stir. Top off the mixture with boiling water to fill the mug.
Rest. Drink plenty of water and tea and such. Feel better soon.
