I made this drink over the weekend for my husband, when he wasn’t feeling well after a night of drinking, eating poor quality quesadillas (maybe a step above the bell!) and ice-cream bars. Guess who that doesn’t happen to? Me! Why? Cause I don’t eat that junk. But, instead of saying “I told you so”.. I decided to be a nice wife and help him feel better. I got him some coconut water for hydration and I made him some fresh ginger and lemon tea to settle his stomach. In the afternoon, I made him this concoction. I am happy to report that by the end of the day, he felt A-ok! So well that he was asking where his other ice-cream bar went! Seriously?!? It would have been in the trash, if I had seen it. But, my brother had already eaten it up.
Apple cider vinegar is thought to aid in digestion by helping stimulate stomach acid. Ginger is often used to treat indigestion, gas, bloating, nausea and diarrhea. It has definitely helped me in the past to settle nausea! Carbonated water can also help settle an upset stomach.
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (I use this kind)
1 tablespoon fresh ginger water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
8 ounces sparkling water
raw honey to taste
Pour over ice and enjoy!
3 inch piece of ginger
2 cups water
- Peel ginger and slice thinly
- Boil the ginger in water for 10-15 mins.
*Note: the more ginger you use and the longer you boil, the stronger it will be!
