I'm too late for Sunny, but for anyone who might be tuning in, Mom used to make ginger tea. Half to whole tsp of ground ginger, boiling water, honey, and for my sisters, milk (I never liked milk). Stir. This will really sweat out your respitory system, especially if you can handle that last gulp, and ginger is a tummy settler. Hubby wants ginger tea anytime he's sick. I won't say it's a culinary delight, but the stuff really works -- settles the tummy, clears the head, nose, throat, lungs.
