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

    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:
