When diluted with jut 15ml of hot water, the syrup’s unique formula creates a 30ml “shot” of powerful flavoured remedy to be sipped at bed-time.

He said: “Hot water and honey is usually as good a remedy as most over the counter cough medicines.” 

Mucus cough 

“A good tip is to drink lots of water to loosen the mucus, which makes it easier to cough up.
