Lemon & Ginger Tonic

Lemon and Ginger Tonic

Lemon and Ginger Tonic for a morning pick me up includes just water, lemon and ginger. A perfect wake up call to get the day going.

Just to clarify this Lemon & Ginger Tonic isn’t my recipe, I just wanted to start drinking something to kick start my body of a morning. It’s more of a public service to share this refreshing morning tonic.

I have seen quite a few people drinking lemon and ginger teas, but I’m not actually a fan of hot drinks! So when I kept seeing this lemon and ginger “tea” I thought I’d turn it into a “tonic” …

Prepared Ingredients for the Lemon & Ginger Tonic

All done! I like to pop just a little over a shot glass amount into a glass and then add a little extra cold water to it to drink when I first wake up. My husband likes it as a morning shot. But you can add hot water to it, whatever! I like to drink it with added cold water. I put a shots worth in a glass and then just top it up. Lemon is such a great immune-boosting fruit, its really high in antioxidants and will help to detox the body first thing which is why I think I enjoy it so much. I know all the good it’s doing for my body.

I get asked this question a lot, where do you get your glasses from. I got mine from here. They’re great quality and look great when serving smoothie, storing coriander in the fridge, or storing nuts and grains in.

Thanks for reading and I hope you’ve enjoyed this and the many other recipes I’ve put out!
