A soothing sip for colds and flu

If you’re suffering from a cold then I’ve got just the thing to pep you right up. This infusion is so simple to make and includes a huge kick of ginger, a squeeze of fresh lemon and a good spoonful of delicious soothing honey. Sadly this drink won’t cure your cold, but it will fill your sickly bod with lots of lovely natural ingredients. It tastes pretty good too!

Finely grate a thumbnail sized piece of ginger in a saucepan, add the juice of half a lemon, 1 teaspoon of honey and a mug sized amount of water (you’ll use this mug again for your finished drink). Place the pan on the hob and gently bring to the boil, stirring so that the honey dissolves. Strain the infusion over a mug (I use a standard tea-strainer) and enjoy.
