The Best Drink to Have in Winter, Especially if You Have a Cold

Winters can be long and cold and not every part of them is fun and great. Your holidays can easily be ruined with something as simple as a common cold, and you need a powerful weapon to fight it off.

This drink is great for immunity and gives the best results if taken before any signs of cold or flu. However, it can also be very effective to make it go away faster if you’ve already gotten ill. The preparation is pretty simple and you will need:

  • 1 inch of ginger
  • 4 whole cloves
  • half a stick of cinnamon
  • lemon
  • tablespoon of honey
  • 14oz water

Peel and chop the ginger, then put it in the cold water along with cloves and cinnamon. Put on the stove and let simmer for 10 minutes, then take it off the heat and leave for 20 more minutes.

Add honey and lemon and stir. Pour into two cups and drink when it’s warm, not too hot or too cold.
