Quite a few members have been suffering with the dreaded lurgy lately (colds and bugs and other such indeterminate illnesses). Luckily @quietlydone has come to the rescue with this delicious recipe for a Virgin Hot Toddy. She says the key is to drink it piping hot – as hot as you can stand it. Apparently the cayenne pepper helps clear up congestion so add it if you are feeling blocked up (or just want a bit of extra spice!).
* First brew a mug of strong green or black tea.
* Juice of half a lemon
* One large orange wedge studded with whole cloves
* 1 tbsp honey (I used manuka)
* Pinch of cinnamon
* Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
Rug up warm and drink it piping hot!
