How To Get Rid Of Your Cold (According To Grandma)


In desperate need to get rid of your cold? We’re sharing grandma’s TWO best ever ‘cure’ for our colds. For the record, Grandma isn’t a doctor and, as far as we know, didn’t study medicine either. But we’ve never seen her with a cold… So what is it?

Cold Cure 1

1. Honey

2. Lemon

3. G1inger

4. A likkle Wray & Nephew’s White Rum (optional)

How much you’ll need

Half-fill a small white plastic cup with equal parts of rum, honey, and lemon.

How to take it

You can drink it in one go but Wray & Nephew burns your chest. We suggest you spoon-feed yourself to avoid choking. Also, taking it a bit at a time gives it time to work – at least that’s what grandma says.

You should be extremely wrapped up when taking this – I mean: jumper, dressing gown, and quilt or blanket – so you can sweat buckets. If you take this before bed (as it will most likely knock you out), you’ll wake up feeling completely different – without the hangover.

We’re not sure what it is about the combination of rum, honey, and lemon, but we know whenever we’ve taken it, that niggling cold disappears.

Give it a try but don’t take this before you’re about to drive or use machinery – Grandma would not approve.

Cold Cure 2
Don’t want the alcohol? Try this instead

We love our liquor but we also had grandma’s other remedy – before we were allowed to drink.

  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 1 root of crushed ginger
  • 4 slices of lemon, plus the juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • Sweeten with honey (until you’re happy with the taste)

Thanks, Grandma.
