Winter is upon us! White magic falling from the sky, winter wonderlands at every turn, and the sound of dry coughing and incessant sneezing. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, right? Fear not, there is a hot drink concoction that can take care of all your winter woes… unless you received a Christmas gift you didn’t want. This specific drink can’t help that.
Winter’s Dry Coughs
Let’s face it, there are few things more annoying than someone who can’t seem to stop coughing. Whether it’s worse being the cougher or having the person behind you take on the role, it is darn annoying! Many of us turn immediately to cough syrups that are almost as good for you in the long run as nuclear-waste falafel balls. What happened to the days of taking granny remedies for the troubles of the common cold and other winter illnesses?
It’s no secret that honey is good for our bodies. It’s also no secret that lemon is good for our bodies too. What would happen if we combined the two? No no, this isn’t another generic combination of honey and lemon for sore throats. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the winter booster drink that tops any sort of winter drink combination you’ve ever come up with. That fact isn’t only because of the strange array of ingredients that go into it, but more so because of the guaranteed healing powers it has.
The Extra Magic
Now you’re wondering what else you need to throw into the mix to make it that much better, so here goes. First, get out the vinegar. No, really, get it out. Vinegar serves as an acidic kick, similar to the way alcohol does… only you can operate heavy machinery after using this one. Go to the spices cabinet and grab the cinnamon and the cumin. Last, you need to find some ginger –
it doesn’t matter whether you have it fresh or ground, it’s all good. Now it’s time to put it all together.
Winter Booster Recipe
The winter booster is easier to prepare than it is to drink it… wait, maybe I shouldn’t have said that.
**This is what you need**
– 1x teaspoon white vinegar
– 2x teaspoon fresh lemon juice
– 1x tablespoon honey (read that correctly, TABLESPOON)
– 1x teaspoon ginger powder
– 1x teaspoon ground cumin
– 1x dash of ground cinnamon
**This is what you need to do**
1.) Boil the kettle and pour the hot water into a mug
2.) Add all the ingredients and stir well
3.) Drink up, matey!
Drinking this winter booster drink is best when you wake up and after you’ve eaten dinner. Like most activities connected to success in life, be consistent. Drink it every day, twice a day, until you start to feel better. Once your cough is gone, you can still continue drinking it because it is healthy as heck!
