Is it too early for snowman mugs? We put up our tree a couple days before Christmas because I needed my three to channel their chaotic energy into good. When we got out the tree the snowman cups came, too. That really has nothing to do with this, but I do need to address it since I served it in our adorable snowman camp mugs.
With the start of November came the cold weather and that caused 2 of my 3 to get yucky colds. Maybe you have a cold in your house too and this is just the remedy you need.
The oldest will tolerate my honey garlic, but he complains a lot when taking it. The middle one absolutely will not try it, so I had to get creative to get it in him. I made them a tea that I thought tasted good. They got about half of it in them and it seemed to soothe their coughing for a little bit!
- 1 tbsp Fermented honey garlic
- 1 tbsp Lemon juice
- Honey and maple syrup to taste (I used both to make sure the garlic flavor was gone to ensure they would drink it, it could be omitted all together)
- Hot water to fill mug
Combine all ingredients into a mug then add hot water to the top, stir until combined. I think cinnamon would compliment this well and add some more throat soothing benefits!
