At 3 am the other night, I quickly whipped this up for my son who was coughing up a storm. After a taste, he exclaimed half-asleep: “This is better than our other cough medicine!” Spicy, sour, sweet and RAW, this is a kid- AND adult-friendly syrup “for coughs, bronchitis, pneumonia, mucus and lung congestion due to coldness.” Needless to say, my son was able to sleep and so did the rest of the house!
Enchanted Garlic Syrup
Puree together in a blender:
dash of cayenne pepper (this is a must if you like feeling the medicine go down)
1 tsp fresh ginger, roughly chopped
5 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed (at 3am, I used raw apple cider vinegar)
1/2 cup raw local honey
1/2 cup water
Take 1 tsp every 2 hours. The syrup will keep for 1 week if refrigerated.
