Just because the doctor told you not to drink doesn't mean you're gonna stop drinking, so go with a toddy: The hot whiskey'll open up your swollen throat, the honey'll sooth it, and the lemon/ginger combo'll give you vitamins and nutrients. Order seven. Doctor's orders.
*Thrillist is not a doctor. Consult your actual doctor-person with one of those head-stethoscopes on all Thrillist-based medical suggestions. Thrillist may cause nausea, severe necrosis of the gums, dyslexia, dry mouth, Oedipal complexes, and erectile over-performance. Ask your doctor if Thrillist is right for you. Actually, don't do that.
