When the sniffles hit, take a sip
The last few times I’ve been sick, the requisite extra resting was a bit of a relief. I’ve come to actually consider the sniffles an opportune time to finally do some gardening, let my brain rest, and ahem…get off the computer a little. Here’s a drink that immediately made me feel in holiday mode, making the sniffles just that little bit more bearable. It’s got the requisite lemon & honey, but also some fresh squeezed orange juice and a bit of blackcurrant for a pop of colour, so you can almost be fooled into thinking this is a mid-afternoon cocktail. If you pour the blackcurrant reeeally slowly, it marbles a little :D Not well, but it made me feel a bit fancier :P
You can use whatever other real fruit juice you like, but make sure you squeeze the lemon and/or orange fresh at least!
Sip back and relax
- juice of 2 oranges & 1 lemon, shaved rind of either (just 2 or 3 pieces)
- scant Tbspn honey (I used Kamahi, from J Friend & Co)
- splash blackcurrant juice
- water/ice to dilute to your liking
