    Default Throat Juice recipe

    With winter coming on, and the pesky colds and runny noses our voices get trashed. I thought I would share a recipe that gets me singing again.
    I use to drink Ice flavored Gatorade, but that is not awesome for you

    Mix in this order in a pint glass

    1 shot of Braggs ACV (apple Cider Vinegar)
    1 Tablespoons of honey
    Stir until honey dissolves
    1 Tablespoon of lemon juice

    At this point you can loudly gargle a few sips of the mixture and try to swallow it (not a big deal if you don’t. THIS WILL BURN A LOT!!)

    With the remaining mixture (or the whole batch if you are too scared to gargle) dilute with apple juice, lemonade, water… I like grape juice. Just don’t dilute with Gatorade.

    Only do this twice in a day at the most. This will sour your stomach if you have too much.

    Thanks,

    I've been using "Singer's Saving Grace" throat spray purchased from Organic Food Co-ops.

    Folksinger's Emergency Throat Patch:

    1 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
    1 oz. Irish Whiskey

    If your throat still hurts, repeat. Soon you won't feel a thing ;-)

    I use slippery elm tabs, they really help me belt out the bluegrass over the mando and banjo players

    Water's the best lubricant for the throat, though I find beer a close second - best English ale, of course

    Liquorice and menthol tablets also help.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing
