Tis the season! Winter means that everyone and their dog seem to suffer from some form of cold or flu symptoms at some point or another. For some reason, overpowering cough drops and medicinal tasting teas just don’t satisfy the taste buds. Alas, we have a solution! Here are 8 surprisingly delicious cold cures!
1) Classic Chicken Noodle Soup
Nothing warms the bones quite like it. Studies have suggested that chicken noodle soup actually canalleviate cold symptoms! Turns out your grandmother wasn’t making it up! Try out this one-pot chicken noodle soup recipe to suppress your sniffles!
2) Apple Cider Vinegar Elixir
Now, we understand that this sounds like something you’d whip up in a potions class … and it kind of is. Apple cider vinegar has an almost cult-like following regarding its borderline miraculous healing powers. From heartburn, digestion, weight control, sinus infection and way more. Many people disregard it for an almost unbearable taste (naturally). This elixir is a sweetened and much more palatable version while retaining all of the benefits!
3) Homemade Cough Remedy

5) The Intensi-toddy
Wait, hot toddies normally contain alcohol don’t they? Yes they do, and so does this one. Your run of the mill hot toddy’s cooler, tougher, older brother. Hot toddies usually contain brandy … this one has spiced rum! We urge you to check it out.
6) Cote-D’Azur Cure-All Soup
It’s just like classic chicken noodle soup except it’s French, so it’s fancier and more refined, you know? (It also contains no chicken but six eggs!)Famed for also being a terrific hangover cure, it’s definitely worth a try!
7) Influenza RX Sorbet
More cold curing desserts! Hallelujah! This cold remedy makes you wish your parents had known about this when desperately trying to spoon feed you grape medicine as a child. ‘Cold medicine’ in sorbet form is definitely something we can get behind.
8) Flu Fighting Cookies
