Points To Remember:
To get an idea as to how it tastes, I have shown it with the measurements---however they may be adjusted according to one’s taste and requirements.
Ginger is strong and pungent. Addition of salt balances the strong flavor of ginger and tastes good. But remember to add just a little pinch of salt.
As we all know, lemon provides the required Vitamin C when one is suffering from cold and throat infections. Ginger juice helps in relieving the pain caused due to throat infections. Salt balances the strong flavor of ginger and soothes the infected throat. Due to addition of salt the drink tastes very good. For sweeter version add honey instead of salt and enjoy. As we all know, the combination of honey and lemon in warm water helps in relieving sore throat problems instantly.
drink tastes good as a healthy starter also. So drink daily in the morning to
cleanse the system.
