Nothing is better on cold snowy or rainy days than a cup of something warm. Now, I like my coffee but even I have my limits on how much I can drink so I have to look for tasty alternatives. And this one made the cut!
Warm Citrus, Maple, and Ginger Tonic – YUM!!!
1 1/2 cups Water
1 1/2 tbsps Ginger (sliced)
1 Clementines (pelled)
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
- Add the water and ginger slices to a small pot and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, or longer if you prefer a spicier drink.
- Use the end of a wooden spoon to mash the clementine in a mug. Add the hot ginger water and maple syrup to the mug. Stir until dissolved. Enjoy.
Leftovers – Refrigerate for up to seven days and reheat over the stovetop (optional). As the ginger will continue to steep, you may need to add more water if it is too spicy.
More Flavor – Use the zest of the clementine.
No Maple Syrup – Use raw honey instead.
No Clementine – Use lemon juice or apple cider vinegar instead.
