This Recipe Is an Excellent Cough Syrup

 Cold and flu season is upon us! Most of us try our best to avoid the flu by looking for ways to stay healthy and to get better as quickly as possible when any nasty bug gets in our system. While there are many tried and true cold medicines, most taste simply awful.
