This tonic is a my favorite cure-all. At the first sign of the sniffles it can kick to common cold's butt! It cleans the blood and fights infection with a few easy steps and ingredients. It also tastes great and can double as a hot toddy base on those cold nights in!
I like to make extra and give little mason jars of it to friends in the Winter.
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon (approx 1 oz)
3 match-stick size slices of Ginger
1/2 a clove of Garlic
2 pinches of Chayenne Pepper
3-4 oz of hot water
1 Small piece of Ginger
1 head of Garlic
Add the ingredients to a 4 oz mason jar. Scale up as desired. You can add a little raw honey too if you like.
The longer the tonic sits the stronger it gets!
Drink it straight or add 1oz if the tonic to your favorite tea or hot water.
*Turn it into a hot toddy with just a splash of bourbon!
Enjoy and stay well!
