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.

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.
