I believe in disinfecting from the inside out.

I am planning my next mead to be medicinal, specifically for this scenario. It will be a lemon and mistletoe with a tiny amount of clove. It will be 18% off dry and served in 2-3oz pours warm like a gluwein.

Gluwein sounds great! I usually make a hot toddy or two when I'm ill. 1 1/2 ounces brandy, 1/2 ounce lemon juice and 1/2 of maple syrup. I switch brandy to whiskey sometimes. Fill the rest of a coffee cup with hot water.

I'll occasionally have a beer when I'm sick, but they usually taste like straight sparge water to me and then I have to pound water to stay hydrated. I rather prefer chamomile tea (or sleepytime or some kind of mint) with jack daniels and a large dollop of honey.

I'll use the opportunity to drink away some of the beers that aren't all that great (typically leftover commercial brews). When my sinuses are clogged my sense of taste/smell is nearly non-existent.

I made a cinnamon nutmeg cider about 6 months ago. I warmed a couple bottles of it on the stove with a cinnamon stick and a clove, a bit of lemon juice and you've got yourself a healthier niquil!!

I do NOT prefer to drink beer when I have a cold. It doesn't taste as good, and I generally don't feel better for it.

That said, I did enjoy a glass of my American Amber while weeding out the hops beds last night. It seemed like a shame to just sit there weeding without a glass of beer.

I did not feel any better this morning, but some sinus and allergy meds has at least relieved the pressure and snuffiness somewhat. Maybe I just didn't get enough buzz yesterday. I shold try again tonight.
