Under the weather
For the nose: Warm salt water
Healthy dash of salt in a small glass of warm, not hot, water.
Pour some into your hand and snort it up each nostril. If you're squeamish, go buy a dropper.
For the nose and other parts: Hot toddy
Teaspoon of sugar or honey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1-1/2 to 3 oz. bourbon
4 oz. boiling water
Preparation: Preheat your serving cup by pouring in some boiling water and let it stand. Toss the water and add the sugar, lemon juice and bourbon. Muddle. Add the boiling water and stir.
Application: Hold your nose over the fumes. You'll experience an immediate clearing of the head. Now sip it. No! I said, SIP it!
