What’s your go-to drink when you’re feeling under the weather?

I like to make myself a cup of hot lemon, honey and ginger drink, and curl up in bed.

A super simple, and ridiculously easy drink to whip up, which tastes just as good when it’s cooled down (for those of you who don’t like hot drinks).


  • 1 Fresh Ginger Root

  • 1 Cinnamon Stick

  • 2-4 Whole Cloves

  • ½ Fresh Lemon

  • 1 tsp Honey



  • To make one mug full, start by heating 2 cups of water in a small pot.

  • While you’re waiting for the water to boil start peeling a small piece of ginger, slice it into thin strips.

  • Add the sliced ginger, 1 cinnamon stick and 2 cloves to the water and bring to a boil.

  • Let the ingredients simmer for 15-20 minutes or longer if you would like a stronger flavor.

  • Discard the cloves and ginger when finished but save the cinnamon stick for your next cup.

  • Stir in 1 teaspoon honey, and juice from ½ lemon.

  • Pour the tea into your favorite mug.
