Lemon Ginger Elixir

Soothe your throat & relax with this Lemon Ginger Elixir. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

I developed a habit of stopping at my local hippy grocery store for a Lemon Ginger Elixir. It was always in times of OMG I NEED TO CHILL THE F- OUT.

For some reason, this drink has been the answer.

Honey, lemon and ginger in all of the right combinations.

More ginger than you’re probably used to.

Your mouth and throat get treated to a spa day.

It feels like a nice warm hug. I think of it as a nice way to ward off colds and soothe an upset stomach. This is why I stock up on ginger during this time of year.

Let’s gather our ingredients.

You’re gonna need water too.

Strain if you don’t want any ginger floating around. I dunno….sometimes I don’t mind.

To serve, I drizzle the bottoms of our mugs with honey.

What I like about it is that you can drink it hot or cold.

You can store it in your fridge for about a week and heat it up whenever you feel like it.

    This looks delicious and perfect for the cold day we are having in NC. Wondering what grater you use?

  • Ashley

    Yes, please share what grater that is! I have one that just doesn’t seem to be that great, I feel like I have to work really hard to get even a teaspoon of it grated!

  • megan

    did you peel the ginger before you grated it? that looks soooo good as I sit here at work wishing I was home in bed!

  • Sue

    I have made something similar for some time now but add turmeric powder and black pepper.

  • MiChal

    I made this as soon as I read your post. It’s sooo good.

  • Preeti

    This is a January staple at our house. The new year seems to bring the sniffles and with kids in daycare (aka petri dish environment), this is our go to.

  • Gunjan

    My mom adds a dash of turmeric too..sort of like a triple attack on those nasty bugs.

  • Caroline

    My husband and I were just thinking of honey ginger tea this evening! This is perfect!

  • Meagan

    we make something similar to this at the juice bar i work in…it’s great with a dash of cayenne and cinnamon :) let the healthy hippy flags fly!

  • Katie

    Drinking this as I type – love the kick of the ginger!

  • Amy

    I made this as soon as I got home from work tonight! I adore ginger or this is perfect.

  • stacy s

    I make a similar concoction but it’s like a thin syrup (you don’t use water – just lemons, raw honey and ginger) and you store it in the fridge….if my throat is sore, I take a teaspoon. If I just want something warm, I warm it up with water. Same idea/concept but this might lasts longer for you in the fridge.

    Thanks Tracy, I just made this and its delish!

  • Shawna

    Whole Foods Berkeley sells a tonic like this at their outside coffee bar. I managed to get the recipe but it makes like 3 gallons of the stuff so I started bringing a half gallon jar with me and just buying it there. I’ll have to try this recipe when WF runs out of tonic, which happens quite a bit.

  • Joan

    MADE IT. LOVE IT. So delicious. Feel so good having this recipe in my arsenal! Thank you so much. I’ve had it warm and room temp – both delicious. Will be trying with whiskey too!

  • Alex

    This recipe was my excuse for buying a new ginger grater, and it is incredible! (both the recipe & the grater, ha) I am drinking some as I write this. Thank you for sharing!

  • liz

    Have you doubled/tripled your recipe for weekly prep? if so, please share measurements! I want to prep this for a week :) Thank you!

    • Tracy

      I haven’t. I make it so often that I just eyeball it. I am sure it would be fine tripled and doubled! Just need to do some simple math.
