Gundella the Witch had the answer to the isolation blues during a faux pandemic in her Witch Watch column back in 1982: get together and drink flip.
Well, she would like never say something as irresponsible as that but herd immunity could have been met way earlier by brewing up a big cup of flip (rum, beer, sugar and egg) frothed up by a hot iron.
Pass the cup.
There are also recipes for mulled wine, hot spiced cider and coffee 'round the world included in the column.
