Image via WikipediaYou will need :
1 cup of hot water
1 tsp of Honey
1/2 a squeezed lemon
a pinch of salt (~1/4 tsp)
I usually make 4 cups, so multiply the ingredients by 4 - you know the drill.
Boil the water. While the water is boiling, squeeze two lemons & pour the juice into your carafe. Fresh lemon juice is better than store bought, yes, there will be pits and pulp but the added nutrients & enzymes are worth it. Once the water has boiled, measure a cup (250ml) and dissolve the salt and the honey in the hot water. Pour the mix into the carafe & add 3 cups of boiled water. Put the whole thing in the freezer for about 30 min or until cool.
Serve & enjoy or keep it for later. Drink it within a couple days for best hydrating results!
