Moxie's Cold Cure-All


I found this recipe for Moxie's Cold Cure-All in Bon Appetit while I was in Mexico a few weeks ago, and  thought it was worth sharing.  The recipe came from Moxie's Rx in Portland, Oregon.  It's closed now, but I thought this looked like a great homemade cold and flu drink



Moxie's Cold Cure-All

Ingredients:

1 TB fresh lemon juice
2 tsp honey or light agave nector
1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp super echinacea extract (you can find this at any natural food store)
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1 cup boiling water

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients in a mug and stir until honey or agave nectar dissolve.  Let stand for one minute before serving.

This tastes tastes pretty good, but it's a little on the spicy side because of the cayenne.  I tried it last night.  I'm not sick right now, but I figured it couldn't hurt.  I'm hoping if I get sick this is something natural, that might make me feel better.  I will certainly give it a try.  I always love hearing from you.

Enjoy!!!

  1. Given that colds are a darn nuisance at best and downright depressing at worst, this sounds a likely candidate. Am still suffering a cough that began as a cold early in December, and while I'm not doing as much of it as of yore, it's still irritating. Not stopping the computer work, though, although have not been as active on the hopping! Will return soon, hopefully!

    1. Hi Ruth,
      I hope it works. I tried it, but I'm not sick right now. I wish I had it after my cruise in November. I was sick for 5 weeks then. I would have tried this for sure. Have a great day.

    1. Hi Micki,
      It did taste pretty good and I think the echinasea is a good addition. Thanks so much for stopping by.
      Have a great day.
