Fentiman's Ginger Beer - Relief for the Common Cold? Product Review

I am sick. My throat is killing me and I am unable to do my favorite thing besides eating, talking. When I speak I sound like a bad auto-tuned remix of the Nanny and Marge Simpson.

During lunch, I was in search for some kind of relief from this non- verbal hell, so my good friend Greg came with me and we stopped by the juice bar, One Lucky Duck. The lady at the counter said that any juice with lots of ginger is good when you don't feel well. But instead of getting a juice, Greg brought me a Fentimans Ginger beer.

I decided to put this theory to the test. But after my first few sips, the ginger agitated my nose and I started having an uncontrollable fit of sneezing.

Even though now the sneezing fit seems to have subsided. I can still taste the rich, spicy flavors of juniper and ginger coating my tongue and tantalizing my nose.

But, I think this would work better if I had an upset stomach versus a cold. I guess it's back to Mom's timeless recipe of tea with honey and lemon and hot soup.

Do you have any recipes to help a Chowista out? Sharing is caring!

That looks really good. I went to this amazing taiwanese restaurant last night and had ginger beer! But the real kind of beer. It is the 2nd time I've had it and it's so refreshing. It's like a beer/ gingerale. Delicious and tastes sooooo good with soup dumplings.
