Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water and ginger in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Juice lemon and add half the juice and half the rind to the pan. (Discard the remaining rind.) Simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, divide the remaining lemon juice between 2 mugs and add half the honey, bourbon (or other whiskey) and propolis to each. Pour the hot liquid through a sieve into a glass measuring cup; discard the solids. Divide the liquid between the mugs. Stir well to dissolve the honey. Serve immediately with a twist of lemon, if desired.


Tip: Propolis is a resinous mixture made by honeybees from various resins collected from trees and flower buds. The bees use it to seal the hive. Food-grade alcohol is added to propolis to produce a tincture that is believed to have antibacterial properties. Look for it in natural-foods stores and online.
