It's flu season and a handful of my buddies have been bit by that icky bug. Luckily, I don't get sick, which means, lucky for them, I get to make them my favorite lemon honey ginger juice to alleviate some of their cold symptoms. My mom used to make it for me when I was a kid and now it's my turn to spread the love bug, not flu bug! Ha.

Here's what you'll need —

4 cups of hot water
2 lemons
5 slices of ginger
4 tbsps of honey

Mix it all up like it's sangria (mmm...sangria). Let it simmer for a bit to extract that ginger zing. Feel free to add more ginger or honey! And you really don't need to be sick to sip on this. It's delicious for no-reason-kinda days! Enjoy!

  14. For your all infornation this very mixer of hot tea, ginger, lemon, and honey is also good for when you are very nauseated. Five minutes after sipping the junce you feel back on your feet. My wife makes it and always works for me. Hopr you all feel better.

  15. Loved your post.
    I have been a lemon water loyalist ever since I was goaded by my mother into trying it as a teenager. At that point I was willing to try anything to put an end to the innumerable zits that started popping up on my face. This elixir has held me in good stead for years now.
    A GOOD TIP is to add a dash of cinnamon powder, its anti microbial properties add a host of benefits to the already amazing drink.
