Ginger boost your immune system

Winter has hit hard on some of the European countries and all I see from my western friends on social medias is heaps of snow. With the cold weather comes a running nose, sore throat or even the flu with fever. 

If you haven't heard yet, it's about time - Ginger is your immune system's best friend. So called ginger shots are booming right now. It's usually a mix of raw ginger with lemon and honey. Those who like it more spicy add some cayenne pepper and the ones with a milder taste mix it with some banana or mango. 

For me cold weather also screams hot drinks. So I thought why not use your ginger shot as a tea basis? My husband and I always drink a fresh ginger tea in the morning (just fresh ginger cut in pieces and pouring hot water over it). But with this ginger shot mix it tastes so much better and you can really feel that your immune system benefits from it. So if you feel like having some hot tea in the morning instead of just a shot, give it a try.
