Daily Lemon Honey Drink

Introduction

I am a fan of ritual. Intrigued by the health benefits of honey and citrus, below is my recipe for an
morningtime lemon honey drink

Recipe

Ingredients

  • Lemon (1/2 of fruit)
  • Honey (1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • Water (8 ounces)

Equipment

  • Pint glass (16 ounce, clear)
  • Teaspoon
  • Citrus press (optional)

Directions

  1. Juice 1/2 of a lemon into the pint glass
  2. Add 1 1/2 teaspoon honey to the lemon juice
  3. Fill the pint glass approximately half full with water
  4. Stir vigourously with the teaspoon until thoroughly combined
  5. Enjoy

Observations

  1. Adding the lemon juice prior to the honey prevents the honey from
    sticking to the pint glass + expedites mixture time
  2. Increase or Decrease the amount of water to adjust drink potency
  3. Use a clear pint glass to see when mixture has occurred

Lemon health benefits

  1. High in Potassium (~ 80 milligrams) : needed to maintain body fluid balance,
    muscle function, and basic cell function
  2. High in Vitamin C (cancer-fighting antioxidant) : needed to repair and
    maintain cartilage, bones, and teeth

Honey health benefits

  1. High in antioxidants : vitamin E, flavonoids, phenolics, + vitamin C
  2. Natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal
  3. Reduces throat irritation
