Cold Remedy Drink – Hot Orange Spice Beverage

cold remedy hot orange drink recipe

The first months of a year very often bring a cold into my life. It’s not the most pleasant of the situations, but it is what it is.

This year, I was trying my best to fight the cold without pills, as naturally as possible. After searching in the deep waters of the internet a little bit, I found this lovely recipe that has been designed especially for fighting the cold or flu.

And it indeed made me feel a lot better.

The beverage is full of vitamin C, it contains raw honey with its antibacterial properties and there a few lovely spices to make you feel beautifully warm inside. It tastes very yummy as well. I highly recommend it.

    Perfect to chase the winter blues away. I use a citrus mango pineapple juice since straight orange juice is too acidic for me. Works great!

    Snuggled up on my couch on one bitter cold Wisconsin evening. I can sum up the experience in one sentence–“Help is on the way!”

    Thank you for this delicious recipe!
    I added 1 cup Almond milk for my second try,
    it makes the drink milder and less acidic.

    Both versions are very tasty 🙂
