It seems like everywhere you go, someone has una tosse (a cough), it always happens during the change of season due to the air the Italians say (la colpa d'aria is to blame for many a sickness). For the weekly Wednesday recipe, I thought I'd actually share something rather unconventional- my Dad's secret cough "syrup". It's not actually just my dad's recipe, but an Asian one in general I think. Let me just say, that as a trained pharmacist, this concoction usually works better than alot of commercial products. Personally, I never used other cough syrups. It's great for coughs as well as to soothe a sore throat. My brother, a musical theatre enthusiast and singer used to drink it pre- and post- shows to calm his throat and to get it back into shape. It's made out of regular Coca-Cola and ginger! "Recipe" (if you can call it that) under Ricette. Check it out and let me know if it works for you!
