Cold Remedy Cocktails (Or: How to Make Being Sick not Suck)

theraflu-beer.jpgSomewhere along the way during an extra-long weekend, we've gotten a cold. And it's not one of your piddly little nasal dribbles with a touch of malaise either. This is a full-on, four alarm, holy o'shit Captain Trips supercold.

Or, maybe it's just our first one of the season and we have no perspective. Either way, we've rounded up the best cold remedy cocktail recipes Google could find, so you don't have to go through what we're dealing with right now.

Check 'em out after the jump.

Hot T&T: Everybody recommends the Hot Toddy, but how can you go wrong with delicious warm tea and a shot of tequila? Call it two shots and scare the germs right out of your body!

Boil some water, then carefully pour the water into a large tea or coffee mug. Add the chosen tea bag, add one shot of your favorite Tequila(I prefer Milagro), squeeze in half of a lime, and add two teaspoons of honey to sweeten, then stir well and enjoy.

C-Creature: Check out this whole list of cold-battling cocktail combos, some of which contain over the counter cold medicines. Most of them don't have a full recipe, but we're sure you'll be able to come up with something.

In Walnut Creek, Calif., the Spoontonic Lounge makes Emergen-C cocktails by request. The C-creature is a combination of Absolute Mandarin, a packet of Emergen-C (citrus flavor), soda water, fresh orange wedge and a splash of OJ. Add a shot of vodka to the Emergen-C and you've got yourself a B-12 Bomber.

Spicy Hot Toddy:There's a reason the Hot Toddy is a classic, and this variation is just what the doctor ordered (probably). Click through to the full story for the recipe and instructions.

Fill a tea pot with hot water, add freshly squeezed lemon juice, a shot of Buffalo Trace bourbon (or your favorite brown stuff) and sweeten the mix with a JalapeƱo simple syrup.

We'll get on some of these and hopefully we'll be right as rain soon - and our cold will be gone too!
