I fell ill last week with a nasty cold. By the time my friend Beth sent me this recipe for a home-cooked medicinal brew, I was already on the mend, but let's keep it on hand for next time, shall we?

"Mix together ginger juice (preferably squeezed/pressed from fresh ginger root), 1/2 fresh lemon juice, and hot water. It's the perfect thing to kick a cold. The lemon makes your body less acidic because bugs like it spicy and won't hang out if you're not so acidic; the ginger makes you hot and speeds up your metabolism so you kill the bugs; the hot water flushes you out."
