Ginger Lemon Tea
Despite the Vitamin C, Echinacin, Zinc, Mucinex, cookies, and wife-love, John is still sick, coughing, and not feeling well. I found this recipe for a tea that consists of ginger, lemon, and agave syrup (really, it calls for honey but I substituted agave). He asked for seconds and I haven't heard as much coughing! I made a cup for myself and it was quite enjoyable and relaxing!
I boiled a full pot of water. To this, I added a 1 inch diced piece of fresh ginger, 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice, 1 Tbs agave syrup and let it sit in a thermos for about 15 minutes. I let a few ginger pieces escape into the mug when pouring it from the thermos because we both love ginger!
