Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
The Autumn is here, something that means that’s it’s the time for some cold, sneezy noses and even maybe some tiny cactus in the throat 🧣🌵.
In general I use to drink a shot with fresh pressed lemon mixed with some honey and cinnamon every morning 🍋. Or more correctly I’m a bit better to make this shot and drink it every morning during the Autumn and Winter time then the Spring and Summer time. I drink it, but not every day, not even every second day either in the summer. It’s more now and then. But during the Autumn and Winter months I’m actually quite good to squeeze myself a lemon shot every day 🍋.
As some of you know my daughter is back in my home again, and she have had a bit of emotional stressful time. Something that also can makes the immune system a bit weak. She was also sick with Covid19 during this summer, and does still struggling a bit with her energy and also some coughing. She’s not Covid19 positive anymore, it’s just a very normal Autumn cold she have🧣.
But I thought that maybe I should “fresh up ” the lemon shot a bit to her, or maybe to both of us, because I red it in a book I have called “Bitch advice” ( the title sounds a bit awful in English 😅 ) that an “upspiced” drink really could “take care of the cold”.
The book contains various old advice and tips from “the old days” built on various ingredients from the nature. There are various recipes, tips and tricks such as ginger mix for hair loss, or face mask that prevents pimples, tea that can be sleep-inducing – and among other things also a mixture that helps / reduces / can prevent colds.
So I wanted to try this “new” mixture I did find in my “old” book that could help prevent colds. But then I needed to buy in an extra ingredient I actually didn’t had in my home 😅. I actually didn’t think about this ingredient as “natural” either, but of course it is natural. It’s actually very natural too- just been “processed”. I’m just not use to the ingredient 🥃.
The rest of the ingredients I already had, because I in general use them on daily or weekly basis.
I need to admit I’m not a very big fan of whiskey, or “brown” liqueur in general like cognac, acevit and so on. My stomach doesn’t like it. It’s like it’s burning in my stomach even with just a small taste. But for some reasons I really like chocolate with some kind of this mixture inside, and then my stomach doesn’t mind either 😊.
Well,- I made the mixture for preventing cold and coughing. Followed the recipe from top to bottom. Prepared a glass for my daughter and one for my self. Because this was a drink and not a shot.
The “cold’ prevent drink” did actually smell quite well. A mixture of lemon, ginger and mint leaves…..and some whiskey 🥃. But to be honest,- it tasted awful 😅. Not either me or my daughter managed to drink it,- and I’m not going to make this drink again. So it’s back to my squeezed lemon shot instead. So fare at least I feel and believe my lemon shot prevent, and so fare during the last years I haven’t had to much of coughing and sneezing, or a tiny cactus in my throat either.
I personally don’t “recommend” this “prevent cold drink” with whiskey, but that’s because I don’t like whiskey very much. But still maybe this is a good and tasty drink for someone else? 🥃
Do you use or take anything, maybe something natural, during the Autumn and Winter months to prevent colds, coughing and sneezing? 🧣
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 😊. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡.
See you soon 😊
There’s different recipes, tips and tricks based on natural ingredients for trying to prevent colds, coughing and sneezing during the Autumn and Winter time 🧣. I prefer to continue my daily lemon shot without any kind of whiskey, that’s for sure 😅.
