 Dr. Charles McKee's Medicinal Hot Drink

Author Notes: My family doctor gave me this recipe when I had strep throat. He told me gravely that I had to squeeze the lemon juice, not use bottled. He loved traditional advice like this potion, which is efficacious and healthy as long as you don't drive. I stir a tablespoon or two into a cup of steaming tea and have also ordered it straight up in a bar.luvcookbooks
