Warm Lemon, Honey, and Ginger Soother


"This tangy infusion was inspired by a combination of Indian, Egyptian, and Costa Rican wisdom for soothing the common cold. Make a pot in the morning when you are not feeling well and drink throughout the day, reheating by the mugful as needed. My husband and I keep these ingredients on hand throughout the winter just because we like it. For children, add a splash of orange juice to cool it down."

This was pleasantly delicious and soothing. At first it did not seem to appetizing but I was glad I made it. I do not have a cold but was looking for something soothing. I scaled the recipe bac...

I doubled the recipe but not the honey (I used raw). To me it tastes like a hot cider w/o the apples. I have a cold so this is the yummiest way to lick it. Highly recommended.
