Lemon ginger garlic & honey cold blaster

Submitted by: FIFIFRIZZLE

Introduction

My kids used to love this drink in winter, even though it has garlic. They would ask for it when they had a cold. It is warming and comforting. My kids used to love this drink in winter, even though it has garlic. They would ask for it when they had a cold. It is warming and comforting.
