This winter when you catch a cold, have some whiskey to help you feel better.

Besides all the nasty weather, the one thing I dread is getting sick. It's bound to happen at some point during the winter months.

Of course, everybody has there own way to deal with it. Maybe, an old family remedy. How to make it go away faster. Even ways to prevent it from happening in the first place.

Here's a suggestion you might want to check out this year.

According to riotfest.org,

"Are you feeling a little under the weather? Are you congested? Do you have a runny nose? Sore throat? Your friend whiskey is here to help."

Yes, they said whiskey.

"Science says that a hot toddy, whiskey, honey, lemon juice, and hot water, can help out with that winter cold."

"The whiskey can help you relax as well as reduce body pain, which is why many popular cough medicines have a little bit of alcohol in them. Whiskey can also help you fall asleep faster and get rid of that annoying sniffle. The alcohol dilates blood vessels a little bit, and that makes it easier for your mucus membranes to deal with the infection."

How about a big cheer for science?
