Wake Me up Before You Go Go

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Mirj

Everyone knows that hot water and a piece of lemon is good for you. This drink started out because I not only needed a hot drink in the morning, I needed a hot drink that would wake me up. For me, this drink packs more of a punch than any cup of coffee, and it's caffeine-free!

This drink is actually very good for you. The lemon and ginger are wonderful for stomach and digestive problems...and yes, it is better for you than coffee or tea! It is more tolerable with a bit of honey!
