Is there a good alternative to honey when it comes to soothing a dry/scratchy/sore throat? I'm looking for something thick that coats it. I tried agave, since that's about the only thing I had in the house that I thought was close, which worked for a short time (and was gag-me sweet), and am wondering if maybe molasses might work, since it's so thick? Also wondering if there's some sort of stuff that you wouldn't think would work, but does... I dunno, like cayenne and ginger tea or something.
