Get a cup. Put as thin ginger slices as you can make them, about a finger’s worth, in it. Then squeeze half a lime, add some cinnamon. Add hot water, and then a generous portion of honey. The honey’s properties can’t take too hot water though, so make sure it’s not near-boiling.

Drink it. You can make another batch with the same ginger slices, but after that you should chew them for maximum effect.

That’s what my throat needs right about now.
