Well, I have this cough, Doctor, says I. Says he, well get some over-the-counter cough syrup and take 2 teaspoons 4 times a day. And in the evening, he says, take a little honey and add some whiskey. Not much, he says with a grin, just a little. And sip it, slowly.
Ooh... what a great little cough remedy that is! A little local honey, a little Irish whiskey. It doesn't get much better than that.
