Hot Ginger Lemonade


Hippocrates used to say that the food should be our medicine and that's why it is worth including ginger in our everyday diet- not olny due to its delicious taste but also because of its incredible medical properties. Since it's the season for cold and flue, it should be mentioned in the first place that ginger helps to recover from cold and flue and helps to prevent from getting sick. Ginger also helps to improve the blood circulation, concentration, fights migranes, travel sickness and joint problems.    
Ginger is widely known as a spice for cooking and baking but it can also be used for making hot infusions. Today I am sharing with you my favourite recipe for the delicious ginger lemonade.



Ingredients:

- 3-4 slices of fresh ginger
- a few leaves of fresh mint
- 1 slice of lemon
- 1 teaspoon of honey

Peel and slice the ginger. Place it in a cup and pour with 300 ml of hot water. Add the lemon, honey and mint. Stir and enjoy :)
