This lovely golden elixir is just perfect for upcoming time of year, flu season. This elixir can be made quick and easy in the microwave if you are feeling under the weather. It can also be maybe on the stove top. The bonus of making ti stove top , you get to breath in the wonderful smell as it comes together. This has the benefit of helping clear up you stuffy nose and allergies.
1 cup water
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp ginger powder
a pinch of cayenne pepper
1tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp of whole black pepper corn
Honey to taste
Bring the water to a rolling boil. This can be done on the stove top or in the microwave. If you are using the microwave, about 3-5 minutes in a microwave safe container should do the trick. Once the water is boiling, stir in the other ingredients. Allow the mixture to cool before imbibing.
