We are in the middle of the cold season and there is a home remedy that you might want to try instead of taking the dreaded cold medicine.
No one likes the taste of cough syrup. Everyone makes that “disgusted” face after taking it. While children usually struggle for this, cough syrup is one of the best remedies. Adults, on the other hand, have another option that you can do on your own. Cough syrup, cold medicine … everything tastes bad to sum up. However, there is a viral video on TikTok that might be the best alternative to cold medicine.
The video platform, TikTok, allows users to share videos of all kinds. Singing, dancing, fun content, and even educational tips. My favorite thing to watch on TikTok are life hacks. Some that I already knew, others that I discovered for the first time like so many others. Honestly, you could really learn a lot from TikTok. Case in point: user-shared grandma’s cold medicine, lindz90.
Peppermint and Cold Medicine whiskey puff (AKA Grandmas’s Cold Medicine)
When I said it was a better alternative to cold medicine, here’s why: two of its main ingredients are peppermint puffs and whiskey … sorry kids, this one is adults only. It’s super easy to do and from the noise of things it’s also very effective. Here is what you need to prepare this cold medicine:
- 2 cups of mint sprouts
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup of whiskey
- 2 cups of honey
- Old milk jug to store the final product.
Like I said, it’s really easy to do. Now that you know what you need to do it, watch the video below to see how to do it.
