If you need to jolt a cold out of your body with brute force, you might consider starting here. This head-clearing, sniffle-blasting cold tonic is the color of Tang, with flavor like a stick of ginger dynamite. It’s a nuclear version of the Honey-Turmeric Tonic in the Coco Morante Essential Instant Pot Cookbook – hydrating, aromatic, invigorating, decongesting, immune boosting, and not for the faint of heart. I made it for Wayne who was fighting a bit of a head cold last week, and sipped on it myself just because it made me feel like I was treating my insides to a spa day.
For reference, this is the Instant Pot I used for this recipe: Instant Pot DUO Plus 6 Qt 9-in-1

There’s one other broth I love when under the weather, or feel something coming on. It’s this Immunity Soup – a monster white pepper broth with jolts of ginger, and stabs of garlic. It defines invigorating, and you can drink it straight, or enjoy it as part of a noodle bowl.
