Lemon and Ginger Feel-Good Tonic

News

With weather as up and down as ours, it’s important we take care of ourselves and give our bodies a hug from the inside. Which is exactly what this soothing, natural tonic feels like.

A simple combo of lemon, ginger and apple cider vinegar makes this a vitamin C and anti-inflammatory boosting dream for when you’re feeling sluggish after a heavy meal or if you’re feeling a little under the weather.

Try making a batch and having a wind-down warm tonic in the evening and leaving it to brew in the fridge overnight for a ‘ready to kick ass’ drink in the morning. So scale the recipe up as prep for your later tonic needs. You could even add in 2 tsp of ground turmeric for even more immunity boosting and gentle cleansing of the body.

RECIPE

Serves: 1

Time: 5-30mins, the longer you brew the more intense the flavour

Ingredients:

2 slices of lemon

1 inch ginger, slice

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

*2 tsp turmeric (optional)

Method

This one is super simple….

First bring one cup worth (or more if preparing a batch) to the boil in a kettle or in a saucepan.

Add the ginger, lemon and apple cider vinegar to a cup and pour the hot water over. We recommend allowing the mixture to brew for around 30 minutes for the best flavour.

If making a big batch place the rest of the mixture with the lemon, ginger and apple cider vinegar into jars or a heat proof container and leave in the fridge until desired.

Happy tonic, happy tummy.
