ginger-lemon brew

this beverage is delish and power-packed with immuno-stimulating properties. 

basically, it’ll kick the pants off whats ailing you or give you a boost to the moon!

8 cups cold water -filtered

3-4 inches ginger root -grated

3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice -fresh squeeze

2 tablespoons honey -raw, unfiltered

quart mason jar

Grate ginger root (peel or not peel).  add to a large pot with the water and bring to a boil.  turn off the burner as soon as the water boils, cover and let steep at least 15 minutes or till cool to the touch.  strain ginger out of water (or leave in) as you pour into mason jar(s).  squeeze citrus and add to brew.  after the ginger and lemon has cooled sufficiently (you can leave a finger in it w/out burning) add the honey.  cap, shake and either enjoy warm or chill in the fridge.

tip:  when using raw honey your goal is to keep it cool... heating above 109 degrees begins to kill off all the beneficial healthiness, eventually leaving you with just sweetener

ideas for consuming:  chilled, over ice.  add a shot to your glass of water for a quick eye-opener.  we love it in the winter warmed up.  too spicy?  use it as you would a concentrate and add water
