DIY SORE THROAT & COLD REMEDY

Lemon, Ginger and Cayenne Tea 

In a large mug combine:
  • 1-2 tablespoons of honey (raw honey is best)
  • The juice of half of a fresh lemon
  • 1- 2 teaspoons of freshly grated or minced ginger (easiest way to peel ginger is with the edge of a spoon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • Add boiling water, stir and let it sit for a few minutes. For stronger flavor add more of any of the ingredients.
If you’re ready to kick it up a notch, here’s another version I call ‘Fuego’.
Fuego Tea
  • Combine everything in a small saucepan.
  • Juice of one fresh squeezed lemon
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2- 3 garlic cloves, skin removed, cut into chunks
  • Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer for five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Strain through a funnel into a mug.
