Hot punch helps with a cold

Tis the season for the worst colds and flus and according to some scientists, this year is the biggest peak of morbidity.

Chances are high that you or someone you know has a virus right now, and this year the flu shot doesn’t seem to be helping everyone.

Therefore, you are very likely to seek relief wherever you can get it. But instead of wasting your money on constant trips to the neighborhood drugstore, trying every new miracle flu drug, you better pop down to your local liquor store, pick up a bottle of fine whiskey, and instead of medicine, make yourself < strong>hot punch.

One of the main reasons your body has a harder time fighting off a cold is lack of sleep. So be well rested.

It is best to combine a good sleep with a good hot punch. In this way, the symptoms of the cold will be alleviated.

For decades, people have used hot punch as a natural remedy for all the aches and pains associated with the common cold.

It is believed to be one of those natural remedies like chicken soup. They work, not because there are any actual ingredients or causes to affect your condition, but because your brain thinks they do.

But hot punch really seems to help – it relieves stuffy noses and helps us sleep when we’re sick. Not only that, but the alcohol inside the whiskey also helps fight infection and the growth of microorganisms.

Whiskey is a great decongestant – alcohol dilates blood vessels, which makes it easier for the mucous membranes to deal with the infection more quickly.

And combined with herbal tea, honey, lemon and warm steam from the drink, you have the perfect drink to help get rid of your cold symptoms.

Once you’ve had your cup of hot punch, you’ll not only breathe a little easier, but the alcohol will aid in deeper sleep.

As with any medicine that includes alcohol as a main ingredient, caution should be exercised. This means that drinking several hot punches back to back is not an option for a quick cure.

While a little alcohol in one drink is great for falling asleep and waking up refreshed, too much alcohol leads to poor sleep and unpleasant hangover symptoms the next morning.

This will make you feel much worse than just your cold. So stick to the rule: everything is good when done in moderation.

Here is our suggestion for the perfect hot punch recipe:

One teacup of hot water

One packet of herbal tea

50 ml bourbon

1 tablespoon of honey

1 slice of lemon

Pour hot water into the cup and leave the tea bag inside for about 2-3 minutes. Remove the tea bag and add honey, stirring constantly to dissolve.

Finally, pour the whiskey, add the juice of the squeezed lemon, mix and drink in small sips. You will immediately feel relief.
