How to Make Cough Syrup Out of Whiskey


When you make yourself cough syrup, use a brand of whiskey whose taste you like to make the medicine go down easier, but don’t pull out your top-shelf bottle of Maker’s Mark. Take 1-2 tablespoons of the syrup every three or four hours, depending on the severity of your cold, and store the mixture in a cabinet, not the fridge.

Things You'll Need

  • Whiskey
  • Honey
  • Measuring cup
  • Two medium-sized lemons
  • Lemon squeezer
  • Wooden spoon
  • Small saucepan
  • Small Mason jar with a screw-on lid

Making Homemade Cough Syrup

Pour 1 cup of whiskey into a small saucepan.

Add 1 cup of honey.

Squeeze the two lemons and pour the juice into the pan.

Turn the burner on to low heat and stir the contents thoroughly with a wooden spoon.

Continuously stir the mixture while it heats to ensure it's properly blended.

Remove the pan from the stove when the syrup begins to bubble.

Pour the syrup into a small Mason jar or another container where you can easily pour the medicine onto a spoon or dip your spoon into it.
