a cup of tea on a table © Provided by TIME Inc. Have you ever sipped on a glass of eggnog and thought “This will surely soothe my sore throat!” Yeah, me neither. Apparently, we should think again. Known most commonly as kogel mogel or gogl-mogl, this concoction of egg yolk, honey, and milk is apparently good for what ails you. When it comes to cold-busters and sore throat-soothers, the flavors that come to mind are ginger, orange, lemon, maybe garlic or hot pepper to clear the sinuses. These ingredients are pounded, juiced, and soaked into wellness drinks that are often sold as shots at juice shops for $5 a pop. Kogel mogel does not fit into this mold. Containing both dairy and sugar, plus an optional shot of dark booze, kogel mogel might as well be known as an elixir that goes against the Industrial Wellness Complex. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a try.

While some recipes (which can hail back to 17th-century Central European Jewish communities) call for the drink to be made with raw egg yolks, I prefer not to tempt fate with salmonella if I’m already under the weather. Heat 2 cups of whole milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisking constantly. Meanwhile, separate 1 egg and save the white for another recipe. Pour the yolk into a small bowl and gently beat it with 2 teaspoons honey (or granulated sugar) and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract.

<p>When you <a href=have a cold, in addition to not being able to breathe, collecting mountains of tissues, and feeling like a viral plague incarnate, your throat hurts. A lot! And telling people over and over that your throat hurts, sadly, will not cure it.

The reason why your throat gets achy and fiery is because viruses cause inflammation in your body, says Erich Voigt, MD, clinical assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at NYU Langone Medical Center. "Unfortunately, one of the most painful symptoms — aside from the fever and body aches — is a sore throat," Dr. Voigt says. Usually it's your tonsils or the lining of your throat itself (called the pharynx) that get inflamed, which causes the ache, he says. Home remedies are dope, and will definitely help the pain subside, though Dr. Voigt says none of them will fight the actual infection.

An OTC cold medication with a pain reliever might be enough to get rid of your sniffles and cough, but you should see a doctor if you can't swallow or open your mouth widely, or if you feel pain radiating into your ear, or see swelling under your jaw. That could be a sign that an abscess has formed, and you should get thee to a doctor. In the meantime, here are some remedies to ease your sore throat that actually work.
