The Cold Buster Concentrate

January 5, 2015

Author Notes: Super Cold-Buster! This anti-inflammatory beverage is soothing when you have a cold or flu. The recipe makes a concentrate that you can mix with hot water. I find this much more convenient than brewing up a fresh batch every time I need a cup.Jasmine
