When any of us start to get a sore throat or the sniffles I cook up a batch of magic syrup. 2 cups water, 1 cup sugar, zest of 2 lemons, and 1 cup grated ginger. Simmer together 15 min. Take off heat and add juice of 2 lemons. Strain and let cool. Add syrup to water or tea and drink every 3-4 hours. 1 part syrup, 4 parts water or tea.
