Good old chicken soup with a lot of vegetables and herbs such as rosemary and parsley -- and a lot of fresh ginger. I also like to finish the broth with a good glass of wine in it, "Chabrot" style.

Steep ginger root in hot water for 20 minutes, add fresh lemon juice, local honey, and a pinch of cayenne. Drink it as hot as possible.

Tom ka gai at a good Thai restaurant. I'll ask for the spiciness to be on the hot end of the spectrum to burn/sweat out the cold. It works. An alternate is pho with extra spicy condiments (jalapeños, chili paste). Of course, there is the old standby and my favorite medicinal cocktail: NyQuil.
