The Almost Healthy Winter Elixir Cocktail with Republic of Vermont Raw Honey
We have this amazing little cafe in our area called The Beehive. It’s pretty adorable and the food is on point. They make this amazing tea concoction they call the Winter Elixir., and I get throughout the winter whenever I’m feeling like my immune system could use a boost. Being that it’s March in New England, I think everyone’s body could use a good dose of this right about now. I actually called them up so I could make it at home from time to time, and it’s surprisingly pretty simple! A little homemade ginger mint tea, some delicious Raw Honey from The Republic of Vermont and fresh lemon, and this drink will do your body good. We also don’t judge if you want to add a little shot of bourbon - we hear it will warm you right up!
Ginger root - 3 slices, peeled
2 tablespoons of sugar (or to taste)
Handful of mint leaves
Republic of Vermont Raw Honey to taste
Shot of bourbon, if desired…
Lemon slice, cinnamon sticks, cloves, or star of anise for garnish
Add water, 3 slices of lemon, mint leaves and ginger slices in a small kettle.
Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.
Strain and serve the tea. Makes 2 cups of tea. Drizzle in desired amount of Raw Honey, and garnish how you see fit.
Top with your choice of bourbon if you so choose. We don’t judge.
