Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey Tea
I'm feeling rotten. I rarely take sick days, but this afternoon my head was swimming something chronic. I left work in a taxi at around 4pm. The thought of using public transport to get home in the rain was too much for me to handle.
The only thing I'm craving right now is clear fluids. My Auntie A swears by a mix of apple cider vinegar and honey. I've added raw ginger and some lemon juice to my teapot for good luck, but the basic mix is the vinegar and the honey. My aunt drinks a mug every morning - she reckons it's better than drinking tea or water first thing. It would certainly wake you up, and it just FEELS healthy.
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 T runny honey
1 cup (250mL) of boiling water
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger (optional)
Juice from 1/4 lemon (optional)
(The title of the post is a bit misleading. There is actually no tea involved. It's just how my family refer to it.)
Pour the honey and vinegar into the bottom of your favourite mug.
Pour the hot water over the top.
Mix it up, then drink slowly, enjoying the soothing honey and the cleansing vinegar.
(For some reason, the order is important. It tastes different the other way around.)
