Many swear by its cold-healing capabilities. Whether or not that's true, the warming spices, zesty lemon, and sweet flavor surely ease the symptoms.

This is what I drink every time I'm sick. I swear that no one makes it as good as my mom! But in a pinch, the above works just as well without brown sugar, star anise, cloves or a lemon wedge.
