Since my work-from-home setup is on the island in our kitchen – The perfect standing desk height – I discovered that I was drinking cup after cup of tea throughout the day. Herbal teas so not the end of the world, but I wanted to make a conscious effort to drink more water as well.
Enter the lemon ginger tonic!
Great for digestion and a lovely way to start the day, you can drink it three different ways.
I’ve been drinking it with warm water, you could also take it as a shot, or put it over ice on a lovely sunny day.
- 1/3 cup of grated or minced ginger root
- 2 cups of water
- 3 lemons juiced
- Peel and grate or mince your ginger root. Add to a pan with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 45 minutes.
- Juice the lemons
- Once the ginger has boiled, drain and retain the liquid (run through a sieve to get out pieces of ginger) and add the lemon juice
- Save in a mason jar or sealed Tupperware for a week
You can add some honey if you’d like to sweeten it, but it’s a great way to start the day.
