Eyes watering, nose running, and having an occasional sneeze- I knew I had a cold !
But what do you do when you’re on a Gemini catamaran tied to the dock in winter North Carolina weather?
First, I convalesced for 18 hours by staying away from everyone but Diann. Our bed has an electric heating mattress pad. (Now that’s one heck of a good way to get cuddled while feeling like manure from goats.)
Today, around 2pm, I decided to walk our Pomeranian girl dog, Zoey. AND, stop by the ABC store in the process.
I know…… bourbon and lemon juice and honey …. are traditional ingredients for a cough remedy. BUT…I didn’t have a lot of coughing. Nor did I have lemon juice on board.
My solution……….Maple syrup ½ ounce. Evan Williams (cheap) bourbon 1 ½ ounces. Mix in tall shot glass. Sip slowly.
Enjoy the warm glow.
