Honey – lemon drink

Live interaction with readers is one thing that a column writer does not enjoy. Lucky me, I was a blogger before I was a newspaper columnist so I know the value of real feedbacks–minus, of course, the kind of muck that seems to be the staple of political blogs. I do get my share in The Sassy Lawyer’s Journal.

The interaction in this blog, in particular, has been a wonderful source of insights, information, cooking tips and even health advice. In the comment thread of my honey-lemon-ginger chicken recipe, reader Malou shares her favorite hot drink made, quite simply, with fresh lemon juice, honey and hot water.

After the school bus picked up the kids this morning, instead of going for my second cup of coffee, as is my habit, I tried Malou’s concoction and, I must say, I enjoyed it tremendously. It was very good.

Malou recommends a proportion of 1 tsp. honey and the juice of a quarter of a lemon in a cup of freshly-boiled water. I like my morning drink a little strong so I increased the amount to 2 tbsps. of honey and the juice of half a lemon in a cup of hot water. It went so well with my ham-and-lettuce sandwich. :)

Thank you, Malou. I just developed a new addiction. :)
