Ginger & Honey Tonic

There are summer drinks and there are winter ones, and this for me is definitely a winter one, but because of the time we're in I thought it was fitting to post this simple refreshing recipe as we're drinking this almost every day.


Like lots of things at the moment, things we presumed were set in stone have been creatively adapted for purpose, and I've discovered a new and just as tasty alternative to our winter 'under the weather' drink. None of us are thankfully feeling unwell but with all its health properties and benefits we've decided it's a particularly good drink to have at the moment.

Ginger acts as an anti-oxidant, has powerful enzymes for digestion, eliminates toxins and purifies blood, which is why during winter when I feel a cold coming on, I sip this soothing hot drink. But with the good weather we're enjoying at the moment, and in an attempt to eat and drink more nutritiously, especially to help boost our immune systems, I decided to try this as a refreshing ice-cold drink instead, and it's just as delicious.

What you will need:




  • 3 tablespoons of grated fresh ginger, frozen for a finer grate
  • 3 slices of ginger
  • 3 tablespoons of honey

How to make refreshing ginger and honey tonic:

Boil one liter of water in a pan. Add 3 tablespoons of grated fresh ginger, 3 slices of ginger, 3 tablespoons of honey, and set aside to cool.

To serve, I like to add a slice of lemon and a spring of mint and sip with a straw.
