Like others have said.... my mother's remedy of gargling with salt water is the best . But it tastes revolting, so make sure you have some hot water with tea and honey or somethng delicious in it to wash away the taste....
Honey and lemon with a little Southern Comfort... good for sore throat or a cold. Make it into a hot toddy. If I had to measure it I'd say 1 Tbsp of each in 14 oz of hot water. Do it as your capacity requires it. Nothing excessive so you won't hurt yourself.

Everyone always tells me ice cream and popsicles, but when I had my tonsils out, hot chocolate soothed it the most. Warm things seem more soothing to me.

My MD always recommends gargling with warm salt water. (Which I do, but hate.)
Chloraseptic is very diet-friendly - you won't want to eat anything after a spritz!
I usually go for something such as Throat Coat tea and, while I know there's no science behind it, I find that Airborne helps me feel better, too.
Get well soon!

warm salt water gives immediate relief.
I also like SF popsicles when I have a sore throat. And lemonade.
