Cheers to the sickies!

This is what we drink when we've got sore throats... burns a bit, but no where near as badly as the wellness shot from Vitamin Barn. No, this one is just slightly and delightfully spicy. The lemon supplies the much needed Vitamin C, Cayenne acts as the anti-septic, and Honey provides a sweet coat to the throat.

Lemon Cayenne and Honey Tea

2 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice*
1 cup hot water
1 Tbsp. honey
Cayenne Pepper (to taste, usually just a pinch)
A pinch of salt (optional)

Stir it all together and sip while wearing your comfiest pajamas or sweats. Snuggle in a blanket. Read a book or watch an old movie. Just unwind. Relax and let it soothe your raw throat. Mmmmm...

Repeat as necessary.

*I've also made this with lime juice - It too, is incredibly effective and pretty tasty.
