My daughter has a small cold right now, which means I have to make her special honey lemon tea drink for her sore throat:


  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar, or to taste


  1. Pour water into a mug
  2. Add honey and heat in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in lemon juice, mixing until honey is dissolved, then stir in the sugar.
