Cold Buster Drink

Well the return to school means the return to cold and flu season. With my husband working in education and myself in healthcare we pass around many a cold virus. My new drink concoction, although odd, seems to sooth my symptoms. It has been said that ginger and garlic have anti-fungal, anti-viral properties and cinnamon is chalked full of anti-oxidants. Although more research needs to been done on the former this little cocktail has become a soothing staple in my house.

2.5 cups of water
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1Tbs fresh ginger ground
1/2 clove of garlic
Honey to taste

Bring cinnamon, ginger and garlic to a boil and simmer for five minutes. Strain into your favorite mug and add honey to taste.
