So for the past week, I haven't craved coffee, but instead, a soothing tea. One of my friends recommended these ingredients as beneficial for a sore throat (thank you Rosemary!) and it's now my go-to drink this week. I omitted the fresh ginger that she recommended, but feel free to add it should you desire. It sounds a little less than appetizing, but I guarantee that a few sips in, your throat will thank you!
Sweet with Heat Summer Tea - for colds
3 tsp honey (I used Canada no. 1 organic)
3 tsp lemon juice (fresh squeezed always preferred, but refrigerated will do)
1 pinch of cayenne pepper (2 if you're feeling adventurous!)
Add all ingredients to your mug, pour boiling water overtop, and stir well. The cayenne may settle out, so keep the spoon at hand, or you'll have a little "surprise ending."
Enjoy - rest, with lots of fluids and comfort foods ("feed a cold, starve a fever", right?)
