looking for magical PORT elixirs for restoring health

Post by novillero » 17:30 Fri 08 Feb 2013

Everyone has (or knows someone who has) some sort of magic potion for making them feel better when they are sick. My neighbor told me to boil a red onion and drink the water (no thanks). Another boils an orange in tea and drinks that (okay, better than onion water).

I have one glass left in my bottle 6 Grapes...

Anyone have a magical panacea that uses port?

Fair-quality Port. Shouldn’t be the best if one’s palate is off top form, but never tat. Plus plenty of water dehydration never clever, even less when ill.

I always go off Port when I get Man Flu, but this is a very good way of consuming a super-effective Man Flu antidote whilst convincing oneself that you are drinking Port.

Perhaps it is available free through Obama-care?

Presumably if you mix 1/3rd Ribena with 1/3 Glenmorangie with 1/3 water you end up with something that approximates a youthful ruby port.
