Cocktails and the Common Cold: Vodka, Honey, and Ginger

One of us has a wicked cold, and this cocktail from our inbox is looking mighty good. We're curious - do you have any cocktail remedies for the common cold?

This one is from Imperia vodka, and it goes like this:

IMPERIA Sweet Standard
1.7 fl oz IMPERIA
1 tablespoon honey
2-3 ice cubes

Combine ingredients with and shake. Serve in a tumbler and garnish with a piece of fresh ginger.

That doesn't seem like quite enough ginger to us - we want to spike up this Flu Season Ginger Honey Lemon Tonic with a little extra something. That would probably be more effective. And yet in the end we'll probably hold off on any booze right now; it wouldn't play well with the cold medicine.

But we are intrigued by the idea of vodka and honey - anyone ever tried this?
