Tonic for flu season:
You will need:
1/2 a lemon
1 in piece of ginger root, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon honey (maybe more if you like it sweet)
1 ounce whiskey (optional)
Heat the ginger, lemon and honey in a pot of water. Strain, add whiskey and drink. I rely on ginger, honey and lemon during flu season.
