In a small cup, mix together the honey and lemon juice until combined. Add boiling water, and stir. Adjust sweetness according to taste. Very soothing when you have a cold or sore throat.
Was very tasty. I like the taste of Neo Citran and was looking for a recipe that tasted like it and you've got it! Recommended for dry throats
Oh Kathy! Thank you! My cold feels a lot better now!
that feels good
Do we drink the whole thing? Or wait every 4 hours and take a sip?
Don't put fully boiling water straight on the lemon or it destroys lots of the vitamin c
yesss! It works like a charm.
My grandma would do something similar to this. She would bring water to a boil, then add slices lemons (i like to do it with limes too) and let steep. Then add honey to taste. Another thing that is great with this is to add crushed peppermint candies, or peppermint extract. I don't claim any medicinal value, but the mint and lemon combo is tasty and feels good on a sore throat.
