I owe you all another HUGE apology. I have completely neglected you all yet again! I got the flu (which was horrible, I am feeling like I am still attempting to recover from it) and things got crazy busy at work. But I am back and I promise your instagrams (@louisesgfkitchen) and internet will be full of delicious and tasty things to eat!
Now the flu has been ravaging New England over the past few weeks, and the one thing that got me through was tea with lemon-ginger honey. The ginger added heat and an extra layer of flavor while the lemon was soothing and comforting. Okay and I also may or may not have been adding shots of my good friend bourbon to each cup... I was having trouble sleeping okay? Remember this is a no judgement zone!

Lemon Ginger Honey... with Bourbon
- 1 c water
- 1 inch piece of ginger peeled and roughly chopped
- 2 tablespoon honey
- the juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1 shot of bourbon (I prefer Makers but whatever floats your boat)
- 1 chamomile tea bag (optional)
In a small pot over medium heat, heat the water, ginger, lemon juice, and honey. Once at a rolling bubble, strain into a mug. Here you can add the tea bag (if you like), if not add the bourbon.
** this recipe makes one serving, you can easily double it etc.
