5 Best Cocktails to Combat the Common Cold

Tis’ the season for colds, coughs and sniffles, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite brew until you recover. Here are our 5 Best Cocktails to Combat the Common Cold.


The most obvious is our Hot Toddy. With bourbon, honey, lemon and cloves, this drink is guaranteed to warm you up and soothe a sore throat. Not to mention the healing properties of lemon and honey will help combat the nastiest cold.


You can also give our Hot Buttered Rum a try. Rum has been known to reduce anxiety which means you can get the rest you need to recover.  It’s also widely known to fight the common cold!


The Boulevardier is another great immune boosting drink. The antioxidants and vitamins present in bourbon will give your immune system what it needs to conquer that cold. Also the campari is filled with fruits and herbs that have excellent healing qualities.


Of course you’ve heard the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Give our Hot Spiked Cider a try. Rum, the cold-fighting, super drink is in this cocktail as well.


We wrap up our list with the Gibson Negroni which has silver gin. Gin has juniper berries which are known to help fight off coughs and increase immunity.


Instead of pulling the covers over your head the next time you get a cold, join us at The Gibson. We’ve got all the cold-fighting ingredients you need to have a good time and combat that cold.


Cheers to your health! Literally, my friend.
