Spring cold? Sore throat? Cough that won’t go away? These Homemade Honey Lemon Ginger Throat Drops are incredibly soothing and taste wonderful.
Plus, when you’re feeling all better, be sure and drop one in your hot tea to sweeten it. Delicious to the last drop.
Is it Summer yet?
Normally I am not much of a hot weather kinda girl, in fact, my favorite season is Fall.
But this year I’m so ready. I’ve had the flu twice and now I have this long, lingering cold that won’t go away.
I’m pretty sick and tired of being sick and tired. Come on summer! Hurry up and get here. When I’m not sick, I seem to be fighting away allergies so these can help soothe the throat during that too.
So obviously I haven’t felt much like cooking. Not even a little bit. I’m exhausted and just feel pretty crappy in general.
But I did have to make an exception to whip up a batch of these Honey Lemon Ginger Throat Drops. They really do help, and I love how they taste.
It’s pretty much like making candy and while it’s a little time consuming, this is because you can’t just walk away while they are cooking. Hard crack stage comes on fast when it finally gets there. So be sure and watch these closely. If you do, you will be rewarded by some wonderfully soothing throat drops.
However these wonderful Honey Lemon Ginger Throat Drops are literally so soothing. So soothing. I enjoy them so much.
I reach for them whenever my throat hurts or whenever my cough increases.
Mostly because my throat is so sore from all the coughing I’ve done.
I also drink a lot more hot tea when I’m sick, and these work just like sugar cubes except taste SO much better. So when you’re feeling better and you have leftovers, you can use them up.
Simply drop one or two in a hot mug of tea and you can enjoy it that way too.
Not only are they soothing, they are absolutely delicious.
Assuming you’d like to use the same Silicone mold I used for mine, I used the one on the left but I have also used these others. (yes I own them all, and even more… I love silicone molds lol)
Obviously any silicone mold will do.
