I've been administering Garlic Lemonade to everyone but the baby, a drink recommended by my girl, Aviva-Jill Romm, in Naturally Healthy Babies and Children. It is an expectorant, tastes good, soothes a sore throat, leaves you feeling much more cozy than where you started, and packs the antiviral and antibacterial power of garlic.
- 1 quart boiling water
- 1-4 garlic cloves (I use 3 or 4)
- lemon juice to taste
- honey to taste
Let the garlic cloves steep in the boiling water for 30 minutes. Serve warm, adding honey and lemon juice to taste. Store in quart or pint canning jars and heat as needed.
