Nice and spicy ginger taste. I made this healthier using creamed honey rather than sugar. Hoping to help my tummy feel calmed. Made for ZWT6 Asian region, for my team The Ya Ya Cookerhood.

Very nice! Tasty and a great home cure for everything from a sore throat to an upset stomach (fresh ginger is said to be very good for both nausea and general upset stomachs). Thanks so much for the great post.

It's very good. I don't have a sorethroat but my nose is runny. It helped a lot. Thanks Littlemafia :) Made for 123 hit wonders
