I’ve been sick. A lingering cold combined with a feels-like-I-swallowed-razor-blades sore throat has been challenging.
Thankfully, I’ve only put up with the searing throat pain each morning for a few minutes. Why? Because I make an amazing (but disgusting tasting) sore throat remedy that always cut through the irritation immediately.
The best part is, I use everyday pantry items you probably have on hand right now. So, no trips to the drugstore are needed! Whew!

To make the magic drink, simply add 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1/2 cup of very warm water to a mug. Stir and drink quickly. Sometimes I add a tea bag to mask the bitter flavor.
After you finish the drink, you’ll immediately notice less pain your throat. This relief will last for hours, if not the whole day. If your throat hurts again in a few hours, make another drink.
