It’s not a miracle cure, but many people swear by the effectiveness of this honey and vinegar tonic. It combines the soothing effect of honey with the antibacterial qualities of vinegar. This combination allows it to tackle the sore throat from every angle. Warming the drink in the microwave makes it even more effective. Use Burleson’s Natural Honey for the best result.

You can also substitute apple cider vinegar for the red wine vinegar, or add a dash of cayenne pepper. Of course, if the sore throat persists, make sure you contact your doctor.
