This is a remedy I created about 15 years ago when I was in Reno. I was rudely awoken at two am by a screaming sore throat. I got up and went to the bar and the only combination I could think of and that was a 8 oz glass of fresh orange juice and ten drops of Tabasco. I’ll keep making it all day until the symptoms are gone.
It was pretty nasty to the taste, but when I woke up the next morning my throat wasn’t sore at all and I was able to do the speaking engagement without any trouble.
