Bitches Brew (a flu-be-gone drinkable miracle)

Posted By Heidi On September 10, 2013 @ 12:35 In 10 Minute Treat,Drinkables | 2 Comments

I’m in fairly good shape health wise (touch wood), but I am just as susceptible to a cold or the flu as the next guy. And let’s admit it, when do we ever have the time to just lie down and blow our brains into paper tissues for a few days? Never! Especially not while finishing your Ph.D.-thesis, ahem… While I sometimes kind of enjoy yielding to my body’s need for the foetal position, I have recently discovered the joys of fighting it. Now that I’ve also developed the Bitches Brew, it has become just a little bit easier. It’s a seriously strong ready-to-drink-lemonade containing the sweetness and punch of honey, vanilla, lemon, and ginger. Cheers!

Bitches Brew (yields about 1/2 litre)

  • 5 dl water
  • 2 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 vanilla bean (either seeds or pod – both is not necessary)
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • 50 grams grated ginger

Add water, honey, vanilla and lemon juice to a saucepan and bring to a boil, making sure that the honey is completely melted. Take it off the heat, add the ginger, stir it well and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Strain into a disinfected ¬†bottle and drink hot or cold. Caution: It’s very peppery from the ginger, so only pour half glasses to start with and see how you go.

Tipsy tip: The concoction is great as a base for a cocktail. Just add brown rhum and plenty of ice cubes and you’re good to go.

DISCLAIMER: Though I can’t promise that this drink will cure any of your ailments, it will give you a deliciously spicy and healthy thing to sip while waiting to be cured.
