The toll of New Years festivities, work, and a peeing/pooping puppy has worn me down a bit and I’m trying to stay on the ups this cold and flu season. You know, the night-time sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever, so you apparently have boogers hanging out of your nose and no one bothers to tell you at work, thanks a lot co-workers, season.
Anyways, Mom always says that the best remedy for a cold is chicken soup. The next best thing is drinking copious amounts of liquid. Even more specific, tea is the crème de la crème.
At work, we sell a product at work called Ginger Soother, a potent mix of ginger, lemon, sugar, and water designed to give you a kick in your snot infested noggin like no other. Normally, I love paying more for something than I have to. Par exemple, I would much rather MAKE prosciutto for $60 per lb. than buy it for $9.99/lb. That’s just me. Even Dr. Phil can’t figure it out. But paying $4.00 for a 12 oz drink just isn’t going to cut it this year. So I decided to make my own for a fraction of the cost. Here’s what happened…
Scott’s Hot Ginge
1/2 Meyer lemon, squeezed ($.73)
1 tablespoons good local honey ($.50)
1 tablespoon ginger, grated ($.37)
1 cup hot water ($Free)
There you go! Drink a whole bunch of these and you’ll definitely feel better sooner.
