This drink, recently tweaked with the addition of cinnamon, is a lovely livener to greet the day with. The fresh lemon partnering the warmth of the ginger provides a gentle kick start and the cinnamon adds a lovely soothing aaahhhh with just a hint of Christmas going on! In combination, they make for a truly lovely start to any day! This recipe is to make up a whole pre-prepared jar that you can keep in the cupboard and dip into whenever you fancy – enjoy!
What you need…
for the cupboard mix
1 x 250g good quality honey
2cms fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
2 heaped teaspoons ground cinnamon
for the daily morning pick-me-up
1 x tall glass
1 thick slice fresh lemon
1 teaspoon of your honey, ginger and cinnamon mix
Boiling water from the kettle
What to do…
To keep the mixture handy in the cupboard, open your new jar of honey and mix in the ginger and cinnamon so that all the ingredients are evenly mixed. Store in a dry, cool cupboard for access whenever you need it!
Each morning, add fresh water to the kettle and boil. In your glass, chuck the lemon slice and then a rounded runny teaspoon of the honey mixture. Pour over the hot water and stir to mix everything together. Allow to cool a little and then sip and enjoy, ideally relaxing listening to the radio, absorbing the news on the TV or in the paper, or more likely, whilst you’re organising everyone else in the house!
Not sure: a combination of healthy suggestions I think!
Well, it’s not hard is it? And, such a lovely treat to start the day!
