I cannot promise that this will cure your cold, but it sure tastes good....
Ukrainian Cough Medicine
2 cups vodka
2 whole heads garlic
1 cup honey
Squeeze the lemons, and put the juice (and pulp) into the vodka in a quart mason jar. Warm the honey up if it's not the liquid kind so it will dissolve readily in the vodka. Add to the vodka. Set aside. Break up the garlic heads into cloves, skin and mince the garlic. Add to the vodka. Put in a cool dark place and allow to meld for 1 week.
Dose: 1 tbsp.
(I have also used this as a marinade. Tastes not bad.)
