  1. Oh dear, oh dear! Hardly a nice souvenir to bring back from your honeymoon. Do you need any chicken soup? Or have you already got a recipe? (I read once that it has natural interferon, an anti-viral…)

    This toddy recipe sounds wonderful, flu or no. I hope you have a hot fire at your toes to go with it!

    As a matter of fact, we don’t have a good recipe for chicken soup. Can anyone help?

    This is so similar to our tried and true cold & flu remedy. I think it’s the honey that has medicinal properties. Then again… it’s hard to argue with cognac as an active ingredient! In any event. It works! 🙂 John

    Hi John,

    I think it’s everything: the lemon, the honey, the cognac, the heat–one of those ‘the whole is greater than the sum of the parts’ things. A good hot toddy is one of the few, if not the only, perks of being sick. ‘Hope you’re not sick.
