Honey Lemon Concoction!

If you are following me on IG and/or Twitter then you already saw this:
What I do is, I squeeze a calamansi or a half teaspoon of "beaten" lemon on a saucer and mixed it with 1 and a half teaspoon of honey or sweet enough for babe to eat it. I give this mixture every night before going to bed or after his evening meal. Why? Well, to sooth his throat, lessening his urge to cough and avoiding vomiting due to his gag reflex.
Aside from this, 2 teaspoons of Honey and 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice could also be mixed with a cup of water (preferably hot or lukewarm for kids) just before bedtime or as a good morning cup!
Honey-lemon combo is also used as a thirst-quencher this humid rainy days here in the pacific and summa-time on the opposite side of the world.
Trick is, beat that lemon up - and beat it good! Mixed honey and lemon on a hot cup of water until the honey is completely dissolved. Then pour everything on a pitcher, add water, ice and mix again. ;)
Stay flu and cough free everyone!
