Gertude’s Cough Syrup

I had a terrible cough for three days.  Martha made this stuff for me. She learned to make it from her mom.  I was skeptical, but took it as instructed. To my surprise, it worked!

  • 1/4 c. whiskey
  • 1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
  • big squeeze honey

Mix together, put in jar.  Take 1 tbsp. frequently
