Lemon-Ginger Water

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This lightly sweetened detox water not only quenches your thirst, it's also loaded with ginger's many health benefits. Adjust the honey and ginger to your tastes. I like to sip this throughout the day, especially during cold and flu season. I sometimes like to add turmeric or a couple pinches of cayenne pepper to the mix."

We added some Calamondin fruit to it instead of lemon and he likes to add vinegar. I don't like it, but he drinks it everyday for his gout to flush his kidneys.

Loved this water - so refreshing! I prefer a stronger lemon ginger taste so next time I'll cut back on the amount of water I add. The 15 cups was just a little too much.
