drink copyI’m back home in the freezing north, and compliments of air travel, nursing a lovely cold, yes it may have been flu but so fast on the heels of the “grippe” from Guatemala, WHO KNOWS? Did I mention how dark it is here?

So, FYI, the best night-time cold/flu hacking cough remedy ever: ugh!Blend 3/4 cup fresh pineapple chunks till smooth and frothy with a 1/2″ piece of peeled ginger and enough hot water to puree. When it is nice and silky, dump into a mug that has been prepared with 1 oz of dark rum, top off with boiling water and sip freely!
