Dr. Harry's chrimbo cure all!!

roll up!roll up!noticed a few members suffering from aches,pains & upset tums etc,recently,so here's dr harry's chrimbo cure all,guaranteed to work or your money back,ladies & gents!!
i absolutely avoid pills,potions & tablets like the plague,always preferring to find a natural,herbal remedy first.ginger,lemongrass & honey.that's it!!ginger,lemongrass & honey all have many benefits including anti inflammatory,soothing & antibacterial properties in addition to being a great source of vitamins/minerals.not to mention a bloody delicious combination too!!sooooo,if you have an upset tum,headache,aches & pains or are just "down in the dumps" this is for you & dead simps too!
i make mine in my cafetiere,first thing in the morning & just pour off/drink cups throughout the day,either hot,reheated in the micro or cold...everyday,whether i feel unwell(which i very rarely do)or not...just 'cos it tastes so good!!
6 or 7 thin slices of fresh ginger,one lemongrass stem bashed with your meat tenderiser hammer & as much/little honey as you like.i use orange blossom 'cos it tastes nice & has additional vit c in it.pop it all in your teapot or whatever,pour on boiling water,stir & leave to infuse for 5-10 mins,drink,enjoy,feel better!! that's it,simps!!

Do you drink that "as is" or is this like a concentrate?
It doesn't seem like you have a lot there for being able to drink it all day. Unless it's just a swallow or two here and there.

nope,just drink it as is,pac.i'd already drunk most of the contents when i took the pic.i just raised the plunger to show the ingredients & i only made up about 75% of capacity.my cafetiere holds 4 mugs/8 coffee cups of liquid,so it lasts most of the day.i sometimes make up a second batch in the evening too,it really is deeeeelish as well as being good for you!!should say that if i'm making up the maximum amount,i would probably use 2 lemongrass stalks,10 slices of ginger & adjust the honey content accordingly.

Thanks, Harry. Part of my problem is a very sore throat. This sounds like just the ticket

Although yesterday, I had a mug of hot chocolate with a splash of Godiva chocolate liqueur in it, which also hit the spot

Mac, a splash of rum would make this very similar to a hot toddy - it just swaps lemongrass for lemon juice.

guaranteed matey!!crammed with vit c & antibacterial stuff.i sometimes zizz it up with one of the orange flavoured liqueurs like cointreau.the orange flavour works well with the lemongrass/ginger & it's 40% by volume/80 proof,so it "kicks ass" as you guy's would say.you can also sell it to yourself on the basis that,being an orange flavoured liqueur,it's additional vit c...that's right,'innit?!!!
