Homemade Cough Remedy

This remedy is a spicy honey-cider syrup potent enough to calm a cough and soothe a sore throat.


  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar preferably Bragg’s, if available
  • 2 tablespoons honey locally produced raw honey is best, if available
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger


Place all the ingredients in a small jar and shake to combine.

Leave at room temperature for a few days or place in the refrigerator for longer storage.

Shake well each time, before using. The spices will not dissolve into the liquid. It will not be a thick syrup, it should remain watery.

Take as needed and have a happy and healthy new year!
