Cold & Flu Drink

Cold & Flu Drink

cold drink1

If you got sick despite all the precautions you took, here is a great drink that will boost your immune response and relieve your congestion. Now if you, like everyone, after the ingredient list go " oh, gross!" bear with me! Everybody I have come across has that same reaction. Then I make the drink for them, convince them to try a sip and they go "wow, that's not bad, wow, that's kind of good, I like it"....

So give it a try, you can always ditch if you really don't like it, all you have to lose is an orange and your cold...


  • 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 piece of ginger (about the size of 1 clove of garlic)
  • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper
  • hot water

  • Squeeze orange, pour juice and pulp into glass or cup
  • Squeeze garlic, add to cup
  • Peel and grate ginger on fine grater (lemon zester), add to cup
  • Add one pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Fill remainder of the cup with very hot water
  • Add 1 teaspoon of honey
  • Stir well


Make sure to swallow all the bits and pieces. Stirring as you drink will make that easier.

Feel better soon!
