Living in San Diego this time of year, we don’t really get much of a change in season. I’m pretty sure this week is the first week below 90 degrees since summer! Ok, maybe that’s a little dramatic, but you get the point. With it still being so warm out, this Immunity lemonade is the perfect thirst quenching solution to the flu season!
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 1/2 cups filtered water
1/4 coconut nectar
2 inches fresh ginger, unpeeled and coarsely chopped
4 whole cloves
1 cardamom pods
1 cinnamon stick
In a medium saucepan combine lemon juice, water, coconut nectar, ginger, and spices. Bring to a simmer, stir until nectar is dissolved, and remove from heat.
Cover and allow to steep for 15 minutes.
Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. Add the remaining water. Refrigerate until chilled through. Serve over ice. Stay healthy & enjoy friends!
