I woke up with a bit of a sore throat today, and my beloved coffee just didn't sound good, so I decided to make some hot water with lemon. When I was in college, I worked for a while as a waitress in a diner and this lovely older couple used to come in every day. Along with their meal they would always have hot water with lemon, which I remember thinking was very strange. I must admit now that I've tried it though, that it is quite soothing and a nice way to start the day.
To make yourself a cup, simply boil some water and add the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Allow it to cool for a while and then if you'd like, you can stir it with a cinnamon stick or add a bit of honey. I'll be adding a bit of honey to mine today to help soothe my throat.
