I’m not sure if this drink does any good in a medicinal way but it certainly makes me *feel* better when I’ve got a cold, especially if someone else makes it for me.
I think it’s partly good for the feeling of being looked after (thanks Thomas!). So if you have anyone with winter colds in your household this recipe is for you. Make them feel loved.
Lemon, Ginger and Honey Drink
- Juice of 1 and 1/2 lemons
- 1 tsp of honey
- 1 tsp of grated ginger root
Add all ingredients to a cup of boiled water.
Warning: I like my lemon drink tart so you may need to reduce the lemon or add more honey!
Also, if you’re feeling adventurous you can add 1/2 tsp of crushed garlic. It’s surprisingly good
