What's best for a scratchy throat?

I have caught my Christmas cold & am trying to take care of my scratchy throat before it gets out of hand. I usually use black tea with honey, but today I had some pepermint tea because I am out of normal black tea. I think I like my honey tea better.
What do you drink when you have a sore or scratchy throat?

  • I've had a dry, scratchy throat for a few days now. Very annoying. I drink warm water or have a cough drop.
