Yesterday I woke up with a really sore throat and my nose has begun to run, as well. The first thing I made was a hot drink, with lots of goodness in it:
The recipe is one of those that I detest myself, as it includes “according to taste”, and that several times. Squirt some lemon juice into a glass, add concentrated juice (I used elderflower from Ikea), throw in some thin coins of ginger, pour boiled water over the mix, and finally add honey to taste. Let sit for just a bit before drinking to allow the ginger to diffuse from the coins.
Something similar based on a red juice was served at a café once and I got the ingredients from their list of contents. I’ve made it numerous times since and suspect I will a few times more again this week.
