My daughter had a bad cold this weekend and wanted some drink that would help her to feel better and not sting her throat. I looked in my zillions of saved recipes and found this one. I had never made it, but did for her and she liked it and thought it helped her to feel better. :)

  • 7 oz. tea, herbal, loose, organic
  • 1 tbs. honey, raw, unfiltered, organic
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice, pure, organic
  • cinnamon, ground, organic to taste
  • clove, ground, organic to taste
  • nutmeg, organic to taste
  • 1 lemon, fresh, organic

I put this in a fancy Irish coffee glass for her. First the honey, then lemon juice and spices.

Then I poured in the hot tea. Stirred and put a lemon wedge on the side of the glass.

She thought it was so "fancy" and she sipped at it until it was all gone. :)

Add to this what you'd like! Experiment with the spices so it's right for you. For her, I just did a little of all of them.
