Honey lemon ginger emergen-tea elixir

for fighting off colds and soothing your insides 

Having a side of Belle Chasse navel orange slices with my elixir made with local honey

Now that I'm working in a hospital, I know I'm being exposed to a lot more germs. It's inevitable. But if you keep yourself healthy and in tiptop shape, you don't have to be worried about seeing so many patients on the daily. One way I keep my immune system strong is with my lemon honey elixir. It's no secret; you can get it at most cafes and bakeries in Hong Kong. But in celebration of the Winter Solstice, the seasonal version of this wonderful drink is made with ginger to warm your body. 

Honey lemon ginger emergen-tea elixir (2 servings)
6 - 8 slices of ginger
2 tbs honey
2 cups water
half a lemon, sliced

1. Boil 1 cup of water with ginger slices. Set aside to cool off
2. In  a large glass, mix honey with remaining water and lightly mash lemon slices
3. Once ginger water is slightly cooled off, mix in with the honey lemon mixture
