How opportune. I've got the same thing.
An interesting remedy Paul, but I wonder if G&T works just as well. Worth a try. Smile

A tablespoon of Australian Eucalyptus honey, a teaspoon of sugar, sliced fresh lemon and top up with boiling water. Stir, then allow to cool slightly and quaff gently

Krupnik is good

1-1/2 cup honey
2/3 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
8 sticks cinnamon
2 whole cloves
3 strips lemon peel
1 bottle vodka

Combine honey with the water, vanilla, spices and the lemon peel in saucepan.
Bring to the boil, and simmer for about 5 min.
Add vodka, remove from heat serve hot.

You can drink it cold, it's better hot. Try not to breathe in while drinking. Use a small glass.

Not sure it actually cures a sore throat, certainly alleviates it, very pleasant trying, Na zdrowie Smile

I have a tablespoon of vinegar before bed, may not suit everyone but has worked for me.
It feels like it burns the throat slightly which I hope helps to kill the germs.
if anyone makes fun of this remedy please blame my mum Wink

That's a coincidence.

One of my friends is in a band and has an important gig tonight (big producer going to see them) and she said their singer had phoned to say he was losing his voice. She told me that if necessary she'd put him on something which singers use for short term relief. I got the impression that it isn't so much a cure, it just gives you your voice back for a bit (and some temporary relief from the symptoms). Unfortunately I don't think she told me what it was, but googling, I think it might have been Entertainer's Secret. In any event, google 'throat relief for singers' as there are various suggestions.

Personally I don't think you can beat honey and whisky.

Wear a pair of trousers with a zip fly. Open the fly and let your willy hang out. Zip your fly up really fast.

Doesn't really help with the sore throat but you soon forget about it.

Well it does in a way. I've won three soprano competitions recently although generally I sing baritone. Also the desensitising nature of my 'cure' has enabled me to use my willy for a variety of household tasks; knocking in the occasional loose nail, cleaning the gutters, hitting home runs in the odd game of street baseball (well the policeman called it odd), smoothing down the felt on a snooker table and removing a blockage from my neighbours back passage! It's win win!

Hardly surprising. You've never liked her ever since she caught you rummaging through her front garden with your short yet surprisingly wide lens.
