Make This Natural Remedy:

Bourbon Chamomile Cough Syrup

Salty and sour preserved lemons are somewhat of an acquired taste though, so this Vietnamese home remedy isn’t for everyone.

But no one can say no to bourbon, right?

This is the original nighttime sniffling sneezing coughing aching stuffy head fever so you can rest medicine… only it tastes much, much better than the green stuff in the bottle.

It starts out rather innocuously with the usual characters: hot water, honey, lemon, and chamomile. But then you add a stiff shot of bourbon and take it to bed as a nightcap.

Besides the calming, soothing, and immune-boosting properties of this natural cough syrup, a dose of bourbon will help knock you out so you can sleep soundly through the night.


1 bag chamomile tea 2 ounces bourbon 1 tablespoon honey Juice from 1/2 lemon
