Happy February! With winter in full effect as well as colds, flus and generally an “I’m over this cold weather” feeling I have brought you the simplest recipe today that is warming and also good for you! Hot lemonade. Yes friends, I said HOT LEMONADE. This is my go to warm drink after a long hike or exercise in the winter months. I find it very hydrating and satisfying AND it can help with those darn sniffles that keep coming back. Are you ready to give it a go?

Let’s be honest, lemonade isn’t something you think of often in the middle of winter but hot lemonade is something different. I first had some when I was hiking in Italy. We made it to the top of a mountain and there was the cutest little cabin serving up warm food and hot lemonade. It was so refreshing!
Here’s whatcha gotta do. First, boil 1 cup water, second, squeeze in 1/4 cup lemon juice and lastly add 1 tbsp raw honey. Mix, mix, mix until the honey is all melted and combined. Taste and add more hot water, lemon or honey to your tastebuds. I enjoy things to be on the more tart side so adjust as necessary! And that’s it. You have yourself an easy, healthy, cozy drink that not only taste good but also helps keep you healthy! Enjoy!
