These past few weeks have been extremely brutal for colds, flus, and allergies. With the changing of warm, to cold, to super warm, to freezing, our bodies have been pushed to the limit. There's nothing fun about getting sick, there is fun to be had in the recovery stages. Until now.

Some people swear that you can get ride of sore throats by gargling beer. It might sound crazy, but it actually makes some sense. Alcohol is used for disinfecting. It kills germs, right? So as soon as you feel that itchy/scratchy feeling try drinking a can of beer or a glass of wine. It might stop the infection dead in its tracks.

I may skip the wine but instead try this theory out on a nice smooth Utica Club.
