Author Kris Bordessa


  • 1/4 cup piece of fresh ginger sliced
  • 1/4 cup turmeric root sliced
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 1 1/4 cup honey


  1. Layer sliced ingredients in a glass jar to the rim. A wide mouth jar makes this easier, but it's not necessary.

  2. Pour honey over the top of the turmeric, ginger, and lemon.

  3. Seal jar and shake gently. Store in the refrigerator for a week before using.

Recipe Notes

You may need to tap the jar on the counter a bit to get the honey to settle around the fresh ingredients. Or run a butter knife inside the edge of the jar to allow the honey to flow. 

When you’re ready to use is, give the jar a gentle shake and pour yourself a shot – about a tablespoonful. Or stir some into a hot cup of tea.
