This is from my family, I think either my Grandma or her sister, my great aunt. I just know as soon as we had a sore throat, this was served up and it always felt good and tasted good.
- juice of one lemon
- 1-2 Tbs of honey
- hot water to fill the mug
Stir it all together and drink slowly. It makes your throat feel good and fills you with a good dose of vitamin C. We have two lemon trees and almost always have ripe lemons through the winter so this is our first defense.
You absolutely have to use fresh lemons. Lemon juice just isn’t the same or as healthy. Delicious!
Thanks for the advice!
Delicious! I love doing this as well. I drink it because it makes me feel healthy.
I usually have tea and honey. I have lemons so I will try this today. I need to try to get rid of my cold and sore throat and be well for Christmas.
Merry Christmas to everyone.
we always added lemon and honey to hot tea when we had a sore throat, certainly the same idea!
Love this drink when I have a cold. I also have been known to sprinkle cayenne pepper on the top to help drain my sinuses. It of course tastes better without the pepper, but the pepper does its job!
