Old-fashioned Cough Medicine

This medicine was given to me when I was younger for colds/coughs.  Since it is now recommended to not give your young children medicine, I am trusting the old-fashioned method.

Ingredients:
Equal parts of the following:
Lemon Juice
Whiskey
Water
Honey

I used a quarter cup each. Mix all ingredients in a small pot. Heat on low until the honey dissolves. Cool and store in refrigerator. Children should take about 1 tsp. every 4-6 hours. Adults can take 2 Tbsp. every 4-6 hours. Use with caution if taking other medications that might be affected by alcohol.
