Canadians will all know about Buckley's Mixture, and their famous motto.
TASTES AWFUL, BUT IT WORKS.
Ti tastes so bad my mother and I can't take it without our throats closing up and having breathing problems. It would work if we could get it down. People swear by it. Unfortunately it does cause some people to gag to death, then that is NOT an effective cure.
Walker makes a much better (and better tasting) remedy than Buckley's does.
2 Jiggers of Kentucky Bourbon or Tennessee Whiskey (the LCBO had the Tennessee Whiskey, so that's what he got)
1 Jigger of CANADIAN Maple Syrup or honey (we used honey in AZ, but here in Canada we had maple syrup which we both drink out of the bottle anyway so we used that)
Mix it in a cup, and microwave for 20-30 seconds
Drink while hot!
Oh my God, is that stuff ever good!!! Yummy And it works, too. I still have a little tickle in my throat, but it's nothing compared to how I felt this morning. Walker's going to make me another one to drink tonight before bed.
Walker and I both have the delicious habit of drinking maple syrup right out of the bottle, and one day I joked that a little bit of the right kind of alcohol would make a really good drink. Sure enough, I was right!! :)
Walker thought that logically if honey did the trick, maple syrup would, since the two are about the same thickness.
That's the best damn cough syrup I've ever had!!! Remember CANADIAN maple syrup. Not that log cabin crap, not the fake stuff, but CANADIAN Meple Syrup. It's got to be made in Canada.
