Medicine Ball Tea

I have been stuck with a wonderful cold for the past two weeks (thanks better half). You know what I mean… coughing, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat etc. I am finally beginning to feel better but my throat is still a little sore and you can only drink so many Hot Toddies, or can you?

While searching the inter webs for a new concoction that would help my throat and maybe just make me feel a bit better I came across the medicine ball. The medicine ball is a drink from Starbucks that many people have been ordering to help alleviate cold symptoms. Once learning of this medicine ball drink I knew I had to make one at home immediately.

This is not a copy cat of what Starbucks serves. This is similar but I choose not to use lemonade and use a lemon wedge instead. I just don’t want all that sugar that comes with the lemonade especially when I’m not feeling well.

I must say this drink soothed my throat and did help my symptoms. I felt a little bit more alive after having one of these so I did what anyone else would do. I made another. Enjoy
