a slice of lemon
1/2 slice of fresh ginger root, peeled
a drizzle of honey.
Add all the ingredients together in a mug, poor in your hot water and let steep for 5 minutes. Sip on it continually as your sore throat or cough persists.
**Ginger has great anti-inflammatory & anti-viral qualities that are great in fighting the flu or colds.
TIPS ON FRESH GINGER ROOT: You can store fresh in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 3 weeks, or you can store it in the freezer in an air tight container for up to 6 months (in both circumstances, the ginger should be left unpeeled).
