Well the cold and flu season is here and I like to have this on hand if someone gets a cough.
This cough syrup works so well for us. It doesn't taste very good but works. The other day a friend of Joleens had a bad cough and Joleen told her she needed some of my cough syrup, she told her it taste awful but it works and Joleen hates to take it but she knows it works.
I make a gallon every year and it will usually last all year. It is better if it can sit a few weeks before you use.
Here is what you need
2 LARGE ONIONS
3 ½ CUPS HONEY
1 PT BLACKBERRY BRANDY
1 PT PEPPERMINT SCHNAPPS
SLICE THE LEMONS AND PEEL AND SLICE THE ONIONS
LAYER THE ONIONS AND LEMONS IN THE GALLON JAR.
POUR THE HONEY OVER THE LAYERS.
NEXT POUR THE SCHNAPPS
OVER THE LAYERS
THEN THE BRANDY.
COVER AND STORE IN A COOL DARK PLACE FOR A FEW WEEKS BEFORE USING.
IT WILL KEEP UP TO A YEAR IF KEEP IN A COOL DARK PLACE.
WHEN I GET READY TO MAKE MORE IF I STILL HAVE SOME LEFT FROM THE YEAR BEFORE I POUR IT UP IN TO A DARK BOTTLE AND USE WHILE WAITING FOR THE NEW ONE TO SIT.
GIVE ADULTS I TBL CHILDREN UNDER 12 GIVE 1/4 TEASPOON DO NOT GIVE TO CHILDREN UNDER ONE.
WHEN WE HAVE A BAD COUGH I GIVE IT IN A 2 OUNCE SHOT GLASS.
