What do you do for a sore throat?

This may sound strange; but my mother did this for me when I was a kid. Get Dr. Pepper and heat it up. After it is hot squirt some lemon juice in it. It tastes good and feels great on my throat. Any other suggestions?

My mom would always make me honey and lemon juice heated up. It was sooo good and sometimes she'd throw in a splash of tequila, just to help me sleep.

Gargle with salt water or use some throat spray. I just heard the other too that if you rub Icy Hot on your neck, it will help. I haven't tried that yet but I heard it does work. If you try it, let me know.

Hello, My parents gave me hot water with a bit sugar in it. It also tastes good and felt like it really helped.. I now still drink it when I have a sore throat! Hope it works for you too!
