The Best Comfort Drink in the World

Posted by madkingblog on January 23, 2009

Don and I have both have a cold/cough type of situation right now and Don found the recipe for what has to be the BEST comfort drink in the whole wide world!  And it is so easy, you just grate some ginger (about half an inch of the root) into a cup, then squeeze in the juice of half a lemon, and then throw in a heaping teaspoon (or tablespoon if you want more sweetness) of honey, and fill the cup with boiling water.  It takes just minutes and it is soooo goood, and so good for you!  Also, it makes me really relaxed when i drink it, so it is great at bedtime!

Also lifehacker reports researchers (and lots of anecdotal tales) have shown that honey, specifically the buckwheat variety, can be more effective than cough syrup (second item) at suppressing coughs.
