Many beeks have been doing this for years, honey as a cough suppressant but now it's being marketed:

From the article:
A family physician and his wife are marketing a natural product comprised of Buckwheat Honey that is touted as an alternative to controversial children’s over-the-counter (OTC) cold and cough medication. The product, Honey, Don’t Cough, is thought to be the only supplier of Buckwheat Honey specifically packaged for individual doses for children.

Lemon and honey have been used as a cough supressant for pert-near ever, but what is the ratio of honey to lemon juice?

Once I find that out, I can figure out how much moonshine to add :lol:
