Yes for most people drinking a hot toddy does really help a cold virus and helps you recover from a cold much sooner.

There's no real cure for a cold virus though so the hot toddy or any other medicine cannot cure the cold virus.

But drinking a hot toddy can help kill bacteria and viruses which can help you feel much better.

Every time I have a cold virus and even the flu virus I love to drink a hot toddy and it helps my cold and flu virus and helps ease the symptoms.

A hot toddy is made using a mixture of whiskey, honey, fresh lemon juice and hot water.

Mix the mixture together and you have a hot toddy that helps with the cold virus.

Even just drinking a bit of whiskey can help kill bacteria and help ease a cold as well.
