  • Old fashioned Cough Syrup Recipe


    Have been buying cough syrup at $12 a bottle then I got this old fashioned homemade cough syrup recipe from gramemery & it's been working just fine for me: Equal parts of honey, hot water, brandy & lemon juice. Take by the teaspoon like you would the commercial syrup.

    OTC and prescription cough syrups don't work for me. I use the same recipe only I leave out the water. I thin it in the microwave just until the honey isn't thick anymore and then take it. Delicious and works great!

    WavyGravy, do you know if this keeps indefinitely? I have been making it up as I need it in a baby food jar.

    I never heard of this. We got thru gallons of cough syrup this time of year, though. I'll have to try it.

    I haven't been refigerating it - just keeping it in the bathroom where it's handy.

    I don't think I'd keep any leftovers, tho, just in case. I definitely would start a new batch the next time I had a cough.

    How about this recipe - crush up a couple of old-fashion sugar peppermint sticks then pour whiskey over it. The crushed peppermint will dissolve when soaked in the whiskey. I have a co-worker who swears by this.

    Janenail - that minty concoction would either cure you, or make you feel good enough to ignore the symptoms! LOL!

    That's what I thought!

    You could serve it as an after dinner drink, too, I'll bet!

    I think the brandy would preserve it while you have the cold, but I would make it fresh for the next cold.
