winter cure all >>>>

growing up, the first sign of a cold or flu, we got dosed up on hot honey and lemon drinks. they work wonders, especially if you through in a little ginger too {and whisky perhaps!}

the past couple winters i've kept a jar full of this cure all mix, ready and waiting in the fridge. a good spoonful in a mug of hot water is the perfect remedy when you're feeling ill. alternatively, a spoonful straight from the jar will soothe a sore throat or ease a cough.

peel and slice a 2" piece of root ginger, thinly slice a lemon, place in your empty jar and cover over with honey {i prefer raw}. it'll keep indefinitely in the fridge.

  1. my parents would make something similar for me when i was young! i love honey for soothing a raw throat.

  2. Love this! The first time that I had this I was sick on my winter vacation to Italy. We went into a cafe and told the guy I was sick and he brought this out for me. I felt soo much better, and I will always love this drink!

  3. Hmm... I have some local honey here. I should get some lemon and ginger and make this for my mom, she's not feeling too great right now =-(

  4. What a great idea. Thanks for posting!

  5. This sounds so interesting! I am a VERY finicky tea drinker, so the typical lemon (which is a flavor I don't like) and honey tea combo is... bleh for me. This actually sounds delicious!

  6. hiya just wondering if you know how long this will keep for in the fridge?

    1. should keep fine for 2-3 months at least, i usually keep a jar going all winter, just topping it up as it runs low :)
