Throat Soother-Flu Battling Tea
This is the most wonderful thing to have at night before bed when you’re feeling sick. The ingredients work magically together to help soothe a cough and settle your tummy. You can omit the alcohol if you’d prefer- it is just as good without. The whiskey is added because it acts to kill some of the itty bitty beasties that keep your throat aching.
Makes one serving.
Into a large mug place:
Juice of one lemon
1 heaping Tablespoon finely diced fresh ginger root
1 Tablespoon raw honey – it looks creamy in the jar
a pinch of cayenne pepper
1 oz whiskey or rum (or vodka if you don’t like the taste of either of the others)-- Optional
Fill the remaining space in your mug with very hot or boiling water.
Stir gently until the honey has dissolved. Drink Tea as warm as you can manage.
I hope you feel better!
