For many people, this winter and spring have been brutal because of all the colds, flus, and allergies flying around. While there's nothing fun about getting sick,

there is fun to be had in the recovery stages. Some people swear that you can get sore throat relief by gargling beer. It might sound crazy, but it totally makes sense.

Alcohol is used for disinfecting. It kills germs, right? So as soon as you feel that itchy/scratchy feeling in your throat try drinking a can of beer or a glass of wine.

It might just stop the progress of the infection dead in its tracks. (
