Who else besides me hates having a sore throat? Hurts to swallow, you lose your voice, and so on. Here's a concoction to soothe that sore throat. It doesn't hurt that it has honey, fresh lemon and ginger, either. I can't say it will prevent or end your cold, but it does help you feel a little better, and I like to think that both lemon and ginger, both having a plethora of health benefits, may do some good as you struggle to fight that infection, and honey, even if you take what you read about it online with a grain of salt, is undeniably soothing.
I know after drinking a pot of that last night I slept really well and my throat is feeling much better today. Coincidence, maybe. Certainly worth a shot!
1 whole lemon
A piece of fresh ginger root. How much doesn't matter- it's up to personal preference.
Honey- the less processed, the better- a couple of generous spoonfuls.
Boil a kettle full of water. While you wait, wash your lemon and ginger, and slice into a teapot. Add the boiled water, and sweeten with honey to taste. Best to drink hot, but tasty after it cools too.
