Grannie used to make it for me when I was sick and if the reader is feeling daring they could add a cinnamon stick to the hot beverage. This is great for when you're feeling sick.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take the cup of hot water and place it in a heat-proof mug.
  2. Squeeze the lemon juice into the water and stir thoroughly.
  3. Drink when temperature is cool enough to not burn your tongue.
  4. If you decide to add the cinnamon stick, use it to stir the hot water and then remove it before you drink the lemon water. Otherwise, you could poke out an eye!

I just made the water luke warm to be raw (I hope that's right) I think this is good to make the body alkaline.

Great! This is a nice healthy and soothing beverage just like my German Oma used to make, she added a dose of honey to hers. Thanks for the memory, Swedish Chef!
