Remedy Infusion

November 7, 2013

Remedy InfusionCold season is upon us. In order to ward off this year’s sniffles, I’ve been drinking mugs of this warming infusion. A few notes – the gin is optional, though highly recommended, and you can use sage instead of mint. Also, feel free to add more cayenne for a really spicy remedy, which is always good for sweating away colds.


• 3 cups water
• 2 tablespoons honey
• handful fresh mint
• thumb piece size ginger, sliced
• half a lemon, sliced
• pinch cayenne pepper
• 1 clove garlic, smashed
• 2 star anise
• 3 cloves
• 2 oz gin (optional)

Put all the ingredients but the gin in a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the gin and serve really hot.
