As so many of my friends are unwell with various winter ailments, I thought I’d post this lovely warming, soothing and healing drink that my daughters call Special Drink!
Rather unusually for me these are in imperial measures, but that’s how I was given the recipe many years ago by a friend in Bristol.
1 pint water
1 tsp coriander seeds
1″ piece of cinnamon stick
1″ piece of root ginger, sliced
about 1/4 a lemon
Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins.
When it’s cooled to your ideal drinking temperature, add honey to taste.
When we have this I usually increase the quantities (mostly triple) and keep what’s not needed immediately in a flask.
And for those of you who are as fit as a fiddle, don’t worry, you can still enjoy this as it’s a great winter warmer after being out in the cold, or a comfort drink for those moments when that’s just what you need!
