Anyone else use alcohol as cough syrup?

So it's three am and I can't stop coughing. My lousy cold that was just a pest earlier has progressed to seismic fits of coughing. No cough syrup in the house so in desperation I pour a small glass of kalhua. Works like a charm, and I keep the bottle on my bedstand just in case. Only problem is I'm so clogged up I can't even taste the kalhua goodness. Obviously I'm not pouring myself a dose before I leave for work but anyone else do this? Or is it a waste of good kalhua? A couple of years ago I had a similar problem and slowly disposed of a crappy bottle of rum that someone had given me. Not being able to taste properly has it's benefits!
