Quick recipe for a great anti-cold drink I'm trying myself these days to fight the dripping nose, the cough and the headaches: hot black tea with some squeezed fresh ginger (use a garlic squeezer), the juice of half a lime (or a whole one, if it's small), some honey, fresh thyme leaves, a clove and a generous shot of rum or grappa. Drink very hot and then have a nice sweating session under the covers.
It works! :)
P.S. you can skip the alcohol part and drink this as a normal tea, it's nice and warming and it helps anyway.
