Cure for a sick husband

What to do when someone you care about gets a cold?

My simple answer is: give them lots and lots of care and be very helpful and nice to them.
So when Bob got sick over the weekend I really wanted to help him get better as soon as possible. I gave him my special potion which I have learned several years back after having been sick with a terrible cold for a long long time.

It is very easy to make and only requires a few ingredients.
Squeeze the juice of 1-3 limes, lemons, oranges or grapefruit, whichever you prefer. I like lime the best because it adds this really great taste of freshness to the drink.
Cut some fresh ginger into smaller pieces. Pick a few twigs of fresh rosemary. In a tall glass that can be used for hot beverages or in a large mug you add lime juice, ginger, rosemary and a spoonful of honey, you can add as much as you wish. Honeys anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial quality is key to recover quickly from a cold or infection. Boil some water and pour in the glass or mug with all the other ingredients. Stir and serve to you patient.

Cold preventive fruit juice

This drink might be a little sour depending on your choice of fruit. The amount of honey will sweeten the flavour a little and you can also use less juice and more water to dilute the drink.

Bob is already feeling a lot better now. However I do suspect that he pretends to me a little more sick than he really is, just because he likes the attention and care that I provide 🙂
