The age-old question. How bad for your bod is booze? Since the beginning of time people have been telling bros to stop chasing their protein shakes with shots, and to stop chasing their shots with protein shakes, and to stop mixing liquor into their protein shakes…
Turns out all of those people are uber stupid.
SCIENCE has just 100%, fool proof, proved that booze is actually good for your health.* Hot Toddy’s, specifically, can actually help clear up that nasty-ass congestion that you’ve had since Christmas.
For those of you who have not idea what a Hot Toddy actually is, no need to ask and look like an idiot. I’ve helpfully provided you with this handy recipe.
- Shot of whiskey
- Spoonful of honey
- Squeeze of lemon juice
- Fill the rest of the mug with boiling water
- Stir that shit
How is this healthy, you ask? Well, let me provide the answer that was provided by SCIENCE.
Whiskey has alcohol in it, and alcohol can help you fall asleep. Getting that extra assistance is certainly beneficial when your head is so plugged up that you can barely breath.
The hot water helps clear out those bowling ball sized boogers out of your nasal passages – something about how hot stuff clears stuff out. Alternatively, you can just eat a few jalapenos, it just won’t be as soothing as a hot toddy…
Lemon juice can thin your disgustingly green mucus, making it easier for the hot water to kick it out of your head. Also, you won’t get scurvy, because that’s totally still a thing.
Last of all, the honey can soothe that hacking cough that keeps your woman up at night. Honey is good for your honey… Get it? Sorry, I’ll show myself out…
So remember, the next time that you need an excuse to booze it up, just say that you have a cold and pour yourself some whiskey.
