As a child, when I was sick my mother had a range of special treatments. My favourite was when we had a sore throat and Mum would make hot honey and lemon drink for us. Oh it was good!
When I grew up and left home I had to self-medicate when I came down with an illness. I worked out just how to make hot honey and lemon drinks the way that I liked them. Mmmmmm!
Then a few years ago something clicked on in my brain. Why was I keeping such a yummy drink for the occasions when I was sick? It’s not as if it’s an actual medicine. It’s really just a relatively healthy (oops, don’t count the calories in the honey!) yummy hot drink. So I started “self-medicating” on a regular basis.
I give you my recipe for hot honey and lemon drink. Perfect for when its cold and wet outside and you want a little bit of sweet sunshine to warm you up on the inside.
Take your favourite mug, the juice of half a lemon, a heaped teaspoon of honey and boiling water.
Add all the ingredients to fill your mug.
Stir, sip and enjoy!
