boozy-emergen-c-cocktails-are-the-best-cold-medicine-ever Let’s talk flu season. There’s always that time of the year where sickness surrounds us, encapsulating every healthy human that crosses its path. And the worst is when you contract a common cold midweek, leaving you exhausted and hopeless for any fun weekend plans you might have had.

So start sippin’ – you’ve got an immune system to protect!
