I have a nasty head cold and do not feel like running out for NyQuil - I'm not a huge fan of cold meds b/c anything w/ psedunephrine makes my heart race. So I got desperate and went for an old Irish remedy that sounds so gross. Maybe it is because I can't smell and therefore can't taste, but this was really good and cleared my head right up. I'll give you my proportions but adjust however you like:
3/4 shot of whisky
2 tablespoons peppermint schnapps (I used Dr. McGullicuddy)
teaspoon of honey
squirt of lemon
topped off the mug w/ water (so it was 3/4 full)
Microwaved till hot.

I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.
