Sounds like a folk remedy my Dad kept making when I was sick as a dog with flu and bronchitis as an adult--except he'd add a shot of whiskey, a good dash of tabasco, and a good dose of honey to sweeten it (and make it a little more palatable) as well. Boy, did I sleep... It really helped loosen the congestion though, and I usually felt a bit better and nearly human in the morning from the deep sleep.
